A 25-year-old female asked:
can a sinus infection be on just one side of the head? is it 'normal' to smell a weird smell & have nose bleeds down throat? what about ear/eye pain?

See ENT ASAP: Yes, sinus infections may be unilateral. Your symptoms are not normal. See an ENT specialist soon. This is not likely to improve without treatment, and may get worse.
