What are the paranasal sinuses?

Sinuses are empty cavities full of air located around the nose: in the forehead (frontal sinuses),both sides (maxilar sinuses) and behind the nose (sfenoid and ethmoidal sinuses).

Their function lies in the breathing process, as well as speech and olfactory system.

  • Headache or a pressure feeling above or behind the eyes or cheeks.
  • Thick mucus drainage.

  • Cough worsening at night.

If you have a kid, you may suspect a sinusitis if:

  • He or she had a cold, got better and it came back.
  • Runny nose with or without cough lasting longer than 10 days.
