Best Answer

It sounds like your sinuses may actually be congested. When your sinuses become congested they create pressure in your head which often causes facial pain and also results in frontal headaches (located in the forehead). If you have had the cold for more then three weeks, you may also actually have developed a sinus infection, due to the congestion. You see mucus provides the ideal substance for bacteria to grow in and if it remains trapped in your sinus cavities an infection may develop. There are several products in the market that you can use to help treat sinus congestion. My personal favourite is SinusWars7 (because it is completely natural and has no side effects). There is also sinusbuster and sinol that you can use.
