  • Allergic reaction
  • Autoimmune reaction

Symptoms of sinusitis include:

  • Pain in the face, sinuses, back of the eyes, ears, or forehead
  • Congestions
  • Distorted sense of smell
  • Itchy nose
  • Runny nose
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Facial swelling

How is Sinusitis Treated?

Sinusitis is generally treated with medications and other methods that can be performed at home, like applying heat to your face with a damp washcloth. Medicines are often used when the sinusitis is caused by a bacterial infection.

Treating sinusitis should help improve drainage and reduce swelling, relieving the pain and pressure in the sinuses.
