A sinus infection may be caused by bacteria, viruses or even fungi. Treatment depends on the type of infection, so you should see your doctor for a diagnosis and treatment options.
Here are common symptoms of a sinus infection, courtesy of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases:
* Headache, particularly first thing in the morning. * Pain in the forehead, jaw, teeth and cheeks, or between the eyes. * Swollen or inflamed tear ducts, eyelids, and other tissues surrounding the eyes. * Congestion, sore throat, neck pain or cough. * Fever. * Weakness and fatigue.
Health Tip: If Your Child Has a Bruise
Bruises are common in children, and most heal on their own. Some bruises, however, may require examination by a doctor.
The University of Virginia Health System says these symptoms should be evaluated by a physician:
* Bruising often or easily, without a known injury or cause. * Significant or increased pain or swelling around a bruise. * Inability to move a limb or a joint. * Injury or bruising to an eye. * Signs that a bone may be broken.
