The sinuses are air-filled cavities that surround the nose and drain into the nose. They are present in the forehead, the cheeks and near the eyes. A sinus infection occurs when the sinus gets blocked and mucus gets trapped in the sinuses. This causes viruses, bacteria or rarely fungi to grow easily due to the moist and stagnant environment. This is also called acute sinusitis.
