Common Symptoms of a Sinus Infection
Sinus infections (also referred to as “acute sinusitis” or “rhinosinusitis”) can cause a wide array of unpleasant symptoms, including:
- Facial pain (especially around the eyes, cheekbones, and upper jaw)
- Difficulty breathing
- Thick yellow or green discharge
- Decreased sense of smell and taste
- Bad breath
Sinus infections often occur as a result of allergies, asthma, or the common cold. When the nasal cavities become inflamed and swollen, mucus gets trapped and becomes a breeding ground for germs, leading to infection. In some cases, sinus infections can be caused by bacteria, in which case antibiotics may be necessary.
