A sinus infection takes place when nasal cavities become inflamed, infected and swollen.

Sinus symptoms are often similar to symptoms of a cold.

Symptoms of acute bacterial sinus infection can last at least 10 days.

Persistent pressure and swelling in your sinuses can cause headaches as well as pain in your teeth, jaws and cheeks.

Sinuses discharge drains down the back of the throat, causing irritation and annoying cough.

You can use a nasal decongestant spray to relieve sinus infection symptoms in the short term.
