Sinuses: All in the front, around your eyes, nose, above your teeth. You have a communication back through the ears, to the bone behind the ear, the mastoid processes. No sinuses from the respiratory tract in the back of your head.

There are sinuses behind your ears called mastoid sinuses and these can become infected.
