Most cases of common cold, inflamesinuses associated (bacterial infection) with systemic upset caused sinusitis.Sinuses are hollow air spaces in the human body. They usually are referring to symptoms in one or moreof 4 pairs of cavities or sinuses known as Para nasal sinuses.These cavities located within the skull or bones of head surrounding the nose including-ã FRONTAL SINUSã MAXILLARY SINUSã ETHMOID SINUSã SPHENOID SINUSEach sinus has an opening into the nose for the free exchange of air and mucus and each is joined withnasal passages by continues mucous membrane lining.Symptoms- location of sinus pain depends on which sinus is affected.Maxillary sinusitis – can cause pain or pressure in the cheek and upper jaw area e.g. tooth ache, headache.Frontal sinusitis- can cause pain or pressure in forehead, headache,Ethmoid sinusitis- can cause pain or pressure between or behind eyes, headache.Sphenoid sinusitis- can cause pain or pressure at the top of the head, earaches, neck pain Other symptoms are- fever, weakness, tiredness, cough that may be more severe at night, runny nose or nasalcongestion, sore throat, bad breath, decrease sense of smell.TYPES OF SINUSITISã ACUTE SINUSITIS  ã CHRONIC Acute condition starts with common cold, which is caused by a virus – cold can inflame the sinuses, inchronic condition- the membranes of Para nasal sinuses and nose are thickened because they areconstantly inflamed.If a child having common cold with a clear runny nose does not mean this is sinusitis.
