I have a sinus infection, Should I be concerned ?

Is it normal to get mucus from your tear duct in your eye when you have a sinus infection ? This one eye also blows out tears or air when blowing my nose normally. Should I be concerned about this one eye ?

This can be due to blocked naso-lacrimal duct. This can also be secondary to sinus infection. Start on antibiotics for your sinus infection after consulting your doctor, steam inhalation 2-3times/day, drink plenty of warm water and also, use saline nasal drops 3 drops 3-4times/day.
