What Is a Sinus Infection?

A sinus infection, or sinusitis, is caused by bacteria being trapped when the sinuses — air-filled cavities behind the bones of the face — become inflamed and swollen. The most common bacteria that cause sinus infections are streptococcus pneumoniae, moraxella catarrhalis, and haemophilus influenzae. Sinus infections often occur during the common cold, when mucus and bacteria drainage is blocked.

Symptoms and Signs of Sinus Infections

Sinus infections usually start as an upper respiratory infection, such as the common cold, with runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, and cough. Mucus from the nose often starts out clear but then becomes thicker and stickier. Pain may develop because there is increased pressure in the blocked sinus, either in the forehead area, cheek area, between the eyes, or behind the nose. The pain can feel worse when the child leans forward, and if you press firmly or tap lightly over an affected sinus, there may be tenderness. In addition, the child may have a fever and headache.
