Can my scalp be tender because of infected sinuses?

In brief: Sinusitis

None of the sinuses are directly under the hair bearing scalp, so there should not be any tenderness from sinusitis.
Your sinuses are below your cheeks, between your eyes and in your forehead. These areas would be tender, not your scalp.
