Pain in the sinus is called Sinusitis. It’s where there is swelling of your sinuses, usually caused by an infection.
Sinusitis is extremely common and can affect people of all ages, usually but not always, following a cold or flu.
Sinus pain can result in swelling and tenderness around your cheeks, eyes or forehead. You may also have a blocked nose, a reduced sense of smell, be producing green or yellow mucus from your nose, a sinus headache, a temperature of 38°C or above, toothache and bad breath.
Sinus pain is pretty common and usually clears up on its own in about 2 to 3 weeks.
Don’t ignore severe symptoms. If painkillers no longer seem to work, your symptoms last longer than a week or you keep getting sinusitis, make sure you talk to your GP.
Get plenty of rest, drink lots of water and hold a warm flannel over your face for a couple of minutes a few times a day.
Try Solpadeine Headache.
