Some are more prone to sinus pain than others because they don't drain as easily. If your symptoms last longer than the others then you may be getting secondary bacterial infections in your sinuses which can cause fever and facial pain that is not symmetrical (more on one side or more in either forehead or cheek). Bacterial sinusitis requires different antibiotics longer than other infections.
