Hello Muchtar, Thank you for the question.
Do you experience complaints of red eyes, swollen eyes, eye pain, watery eyes? Do you also complain of headaches? Did you also experience complaints of nasal congestion, runny nose, fever, pain in the cheek or forehead before this complaint appeared? Your complaint may be caused by sinusitis, which is inflammation of the sinuses. Sinus is an air cavity located under the cheekbones, nose, and forehead. Sinusitis can cause symptoms of headaches, nasal congestion, nasal mucus that changes color, fever, reduced smell, mucus feels flowing from the nose to the throat, bad breath, pain in the face especially when pressed. In addition to sinusitis, complaints over the brow pain can be caused by cluster headaches, migraines, temporal arteritis, or trigeminal neuralgia.
Is this change in color of phlegm accompanied by coughing? In addition to sinusitis, this complaint can also be caused by sores on the respiratory tract due to coughing that is too hard, pneumonia, tuberculosis, bronchiectasis, bronchitis, and others.
