How can I tell if I have a sinus infection?

0

I have swelling in my sinus cavities, I can breath through my nose but can tell theres swelling. I was sneezing and had all the symptoms of sinus for about a week and now no sneezing but when I blow my nose its yellowish with blood in it (when anything will come out). My nose is very dry feeling also and I get some headaches.

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Sinus infection, or Sinusitis, can be caused by a variety of things. In most instances, it occurs when bacteria, fungi or viral bodies enter your sinus cavities and cause a blockage. As a result, the lining of your cavity might swell up and prevent mucus from draining out of your sinuses.
