8 Signs You Have a Sinus Infection

Sunrise, FL--(Marketwired - March 10, 2016) -

WHO: Dr. Ford Brewer, chief medical officer at MDLIVE, the nation's largest telehealth network of doctors, pediatricians and therapists.

WHAT: According to Dr. Brewer, an individual with a cold that is just not getting better or is worse after 5-7 days may have acute sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses). This occurs when there is bacterial growth in the sinuses as a result of an infection from a virus, bacteria, or fungus. Dr. Brewer recommends keeping a watchful eye out for the 8 most common sinusitis symptoms:

  1. Bad breath or loss of smell
  2. Cough, often worse at night
  3. Fatigue and general feeling of being unwell
  4. Fever
  5. Headache
  6. Pressure-like pain, pain behind the eyes, toothache, or facial tenderness
  7. Nasal stuffiness and discharge
  8. Sore throat and postnasal drip

WHERE: Individuals that think they may have a sinus infection should contact their doctor. For those that can't wait days for an appointment or don't want to struggle in to their doctor's office, MDLIVE provides a consult with a Board Certified doctor via secure online video, MDLIVE App or interactive audio. Typical wait time is less than 15 minutes.

WHEN: Consults are available 24/7/365 and currently MDLIVE is offering $10 off initial consults. Consumers should enter the promocode PAINFREE in the promo code section on the payment screen to get $10 off their first MDLIVE phone or video consult before 3/18/16*. Details on promo code can be found at:
