Its turned bacterial: It sounds as if you have a typical viral sinus infection diagnosed at the ER; now its progressed into the adjacent sinus cavities. If you were started on an antibiotic, then you need one from a different family. If you weren't started on an antibiotic then you need to be started on one. Go back to the ER or your PCP.

Danger Sign?: Go to ER for Emergency evaluation and treatment! Black skin lesions in the face are not normal and sometimes point to fungal invasive infections that are serious and need immediate treatment in the hospital!
