Sinus Infection Causes & Symptoms
With sinusitis, the tissues of your sinuses become inflamed. Your sinuses are located in your forehead, between your eyes, and on both sides of your nose. Healthy sinuses are hollow cavities filled with air, but an infection can cause them to swell and become filled with fluid and mucus. This creates symptoms like:
- Runny nose with thick green or yellow mucus
- Postnasal drip (mucus running down your throat)
- Sinus pressure (affecting your nose, eyes, forehead, ears, cheeks, and teeth) that may worsen with movement or when bending over
- Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
Sinus infections can be bacterial, viral, or fungal in nature, though fungal infections are rare. Most sinus infections are viral and many arise as a complication of rhinovirus (the common cold). However, they can be caused by other pathogens and can even happen as a result of allergies in some cases. Sinus infection treatments vary based on the type of infection, which a PhysicianOne Urgent Care provider can assess for you.
