Sinus Infection

The sinuses are hollowed out spaces located behind the cheekbones and forehead as well is in the areas around the eyes. These cavities produce mucus in order to moisten the air that you breathe. When your sinuses are blocked, swollen, or infected, mucus is not able to drain from them adequately. Sinus infections are caused by bacteria, virus, and fungus in the nasal cavities as well as other causes such as tobacco smoke, hay fever, air pollution, and other allergies. Sinus infections can also be caused by sneezing forcefully while your mouth is closed as well as blowing your nose excessively. If your nasal cavities are malformed, this can also cause infection since it will be difficult for the nose to drain.
