See below: Justin: Sinus or sinusitis is an overused term, without a uniform connotation. Dry air can dry out the mucus membrane of the nose and cause a sensation of burning, especially if you do not make enough mucus. Dry air by itself does not cause sinusitis. Bacterial infection in the sinuses may require antibiotic treatment. Seeing your doctor would be prudent to settle the issue.
