In brief: Multiple

Congestion, purulent nasal discharge, facial pain or pressure over frontal or maxillary sinuses.
This pain can also be felt around temporal area, and can lead to tooth sensitivity or pain. Fever is somewhat rare. Usually the longer you have had the symptoms, the more likely it is bacterial (vs viral or even plain allergies).
