Sinus infections are a swelling or inflammation of the tissue lining the sinuses. When you have a sinus infection, the sinuses become blocked with fluid and germs. People often report feeling pressure on their sinuses along with pain in their face and head.
What causes a sinus infection?
Many people get sinus infections as a result of a trigger (like a food allergy or seasonal allergic reaction). Smoking can also cause sinus infections. Additionally, liver dysfuntion might cause sinus infections (along with other symptoms). In children, interacting at play time may be enough to pass the infection from one child to another.
What are the symptoms of a sinus infection?
