Sinuses are air-filled cavities (spaces) located in your forehead, cheekbones, and behind the bridge of your nose.
Sinus headaches are associated with a deep and constant pain in the cheekbones, forehead, or bridge of the nose. Although many chronic headaches are labeled sinus headaches, most of these chronic headaches are in fact migraine or tension headaches.
Treatment of sinus headaches is usually directed toward symptom relief and treating the infection. Other drugs to treat sinus infections include pain relievers, or if they don't provide relief, corticosteroids may be prescribed to further decrease the inflammation. Simple measures such as drinking more fluids and using a humidifier or salt water nasal spray can be helpful in treating sinus headaches.

Treatment might include antibiotics for the infection, as well as a short period of antihistamines (such as Benadryl) or decongestants (such as Sudafed) to treat the symptoms. When an allergen is causing the sinus flare-ups, preventive allergy therapy is often needed. When a sinus becomes inflamed, usually as the result of an allergic reaction, a tumor, or an infection, the inflammation causes swelling and increased mucus production and the channels can become blocked. The pain is usually accompanied by other sinus symptoms, such as nasal discharge, feeling of fullness in the ears, fever, and facial swelling.
That is why it is important for your doctor to determine whether your headache symptoms are actually caused by your sinuses.


Inhaled nasal decongestants (such as Afrin) can also be used, but only for up to three days. If your headache is truly caused by a sinus blockage, such as an infection, you will likely have a fever. Usually the history and physical exam are sufficient to determine if there is a blockage in your sinuses, but in some instances, CT and MRI scans will be needed.
