Sinuses are air-filled cavities present in the skull-bone, communicating with the nose through tiny openings. Therefore, a nasal infection sometimes spreads to one or more sinuses causing a swelling of their inner surfaces. Symptoms of sinusitis include throbbing pain in the forehead or cheeks which gets worse on stooping, moving, the head or coughing and, sometimes, fever.
Check if most symptoms of any of these medicines match with most of your symptoms:
Hepar sulph 30 : Right-sided frontal sinusitis causing sharp, splinter-like pain in the forehead and the root of the nose; the pain gets worse from cold air or consuming cold foods/drinks; in general the person is chilly (requiring warm clothes even in summer) and overly sensitive to the environment (noise, touch, light, etc.).
Kali bich 30 : Sinusitis in hot weather (summer), causing wandering pain in the forehead, in a spot that can be covered by the tip of the finger; very tough, greenish yellow string-like discharge from the nose; pain is worse in the morning or from noise but diminishes by inhaling steam or lying down.
Kali iod 30: Chronic sinusitis causing throbbing pain and burning in the nose and the sinuses; the pain is Worse' at night or from steam-inhalation but diminishes on moving in open air; profuse, watery and hot discharge from the nose.
Mercurius sol 30 : Right-sided sinusitis associated with earache, toothache and vertigo which increases on lying on the back; the pain is not relieved by inhaling steam; feeling of a band around the head; there is acrid, thick, greenish yellow, pus-like discharge from the nose, more at night. Intense thirst for large amounts of cold water and profuse, offensive perspiration confirm the choice of Mercurius.
Pulsatilla 30 : Sinusitis, with pain that shifts from one part of head to another (like Kali bich); the pain gets worse from steam-inhalation but is relieved by pressure, cold applications or moving in open air; profuse thick, greenish yellow, bland discharge from the nose. A mild, weeping nature and thirstlessness confirm the choice of Pulsatilla.
Silicia 30 : Headache starts from the back of the head and settles above the right eye (right frontal sinusitis); the pain is worse from movements (stooping), noise and cold air but is relieved by pressure (tying a tight band around the head) and urination; great chilliness (like Hapar sulph) so that the person wraps himself with warm clothes even in summer.
