Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

Yes, acute sinusitis can give rise to all the problems mentioned by you. You need to get a CT scan of the paranasal sinuses to look for any complications secondary to sinusitis which is causing lip and gum problems.

Meanwhile, stop the paste you are using for the gum problems and drink plenty of warm water.

I wish you good health

Hello & welcome
Your problem is probably related to your gums only, if you don't have any history of continuous headache, feeling of heaviness, or dizziness and vertigo while bending you can rule out sinusitis.
For gums problem only paste can't help, you have to visit your dentist for scaling and curettage.
Rest maintain your oral hygiene using hydroxyl mouthwash in 1:4 ration twice a day, massage of gums with tan-X gum paint 2-3 times a day, & warm saline rinse.

hello you have any recent history of cold or pain in the mid face region?if so there are chances for sinusitis...What paste are you brushing with?When you have deposits that gets accumulated over the tooth, it creates spacing between the gums and the tooth you eat gets lodged within these spaces and gets decomposed due to the action of bacteria...this causes bad breadth....if left untreated the health of the gum is affected and results in generalized pus discharge... Get your teeth cleaned...once the tooth deposits are removed your doctor would advice you mouth rinses that would keep your oral cavity afresh...Consult your dental surgeon for further clinical evaluation and management.
