Sinusitis: This can result from allergies, common colds, dental infections, trauma, nose bleeds and other things. They all produce obstruction to drainage. You can try to remedy this with sinus rinses twice a day, use of a nasal steroid spray, and stay away from antibiotics if at all possible. See an ENT doctor if this continues.
