Thanks for the query.

Yes, pain in this region may be sinusitis. Ideal way to confirm this is to get an x-ray or scan done.

Foods to eliminate are cold food products, candy, ice- creams, cold drinks, alcohol, chocolate, dairy products, sugar and yeast. In addition, if you are allergic or do not tolerate any food item, avoid that, as that can lead to increase in congestion and mucus production.

Soups are always a welcome in sinusitis.
Steam inhalation can also be extremely good home remedy.

Please ask if there are doubts.
