Infection?

Not too sure if it's a sinus headache or not. Past 3 weeks been having intermittent pain in right frontal sinus of my head. Don't have this pain every day. With some post nasal drip and slight right nasal congestion. The mucus is clear. Could this be an infection?

Re: Infection?

MariP1,

It could be- but it could just as easily be a bad cold. I just went through it myself...now, its in my chest.

Sinus infections usually cause yellow discharge, not clear and usually over the counter sinus medicine does nothing. A true infection needs antibiotics to clear up. Have you tried any over the counter cold/ sinus medicine? Do you find it helps even for just a few hours?

If it does not, go to an urgent care or go see your doctor..you may be right and antibiotics may be needed; however, from your description, it sounds like a bad cold which is lingering...
