facial pain

I have an ache on right side of face from the temple to jaw line.  I have a bad cold with soreness on both sides of my neck.  The cold symptoms, including sore throat coughing and sneezing, worked from left side to right side and is starting to break but still have an occasional cough and some sneezing.

Thank you, you confirmed my suspicions.  Been using some of your suggestions.  It has been 5 days since this cold started, guess I have a couple more to go before it breaks.

Hi!
In all probability the symptoms are due to maxillary sinusitis (under your cheek bone) and due to frontal sinusitis (under forehead bone). You would need to consult an ENT specialst for this. Meanwhile try deep breathing exercise and steam inhalation. Over the counter antihistamines, and decongestants and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs may all help. However please take with prescription. Steam inhalation, drinking hot fluids and soups, warm lemonade, gargling with warm saline water are all very helpful.
If the cough, sneezing and cold are persisting for some time then causes such as mold, EBV infection or mono, and allergy to pet dander, pollen, dust etc would need to be ruled out. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
