When to Seek Medical Care
Sinus headaches and infections may sometimes be successfully treated at home (see below). However, you should seek medical care if you are not sure what is causing your symptoms or if you have signs of a severe infection including high fever, symptoms that do not resolve with time, or if over-the-counter pain relievers are not effective in controlling the pain. You should also seek care if you noticed swelling in the face that accompanies the pain, swelling around your eye or changes in vision, since this could be a sign of an abscess.
