While the symptoms may be the same (watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, etc.), there are ways to tell if you have a cold or something more serious, such as a sinus infection.
- A sinus infection is caused by the nasal passages being infected.
- In addition to cold-like symptoms, sinus infections also produce additional symptoms such as a fever, headache, pressure behind the eyes/cheeks and fatigue, among others.
- If you feel you have a sinus infection, you should see a provider right away.
- Mount Nittany Physician Group Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) specialists welcome new patients of all ages — with next and even same-day appointments available.
