Sinusitis: Sinus infection is likely w/ nasal congestion, facial pain / headache, post-nasal drip (often with a sore throat) ; colored nasal drainage or sputum (yellow, green. Brown or bloody).

Simple exam and certain types of x-rays (e.g., cat scan) will help elucidate the problem. ...Read more

I have forehead pain above my eyebrow area and in the middle of my forehead. Also tenderness in the cheekbones and eye area. Plz Doctor Jay C tell me ?

This could vary from different types of infections to just plain allergies. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a history of sinus infections... I am currently having slot of pain in my upper jaw, cheekbone and lower eye socket, swelling in the right side?

Maxillary sinus: This sounds like congestion and/or infection of the maxillary paranasal sinus. Encourage drainage by applying heat and/or inhaling steam,irrigating the nasal passages with warm,salt water,using a nasal decongestant spray sparingly, but a course of appropriate antibiotics are probably needed.,An otolaryngologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you. ...Read more
