Can dry sinuses cause earaches?
With this bitter cold weather we have had to run the humidifier a lot this week. However, our sinuses are still dry and I woke up today with a miserable earache. I notice this happens frequently during the winter time, even times such as this week when I haven't been out and about and exposed to illness. Can the dry sinuses be bringing on my earaches?
Yes, inflammation in the sinuses can be caused by dryness and that inflammation can indeed cause an earache. If it comes and goes especially with the dry, harsh air and isn't constant, chances are it's due to inflammation in there and not an infection. Sinus infections also cause earaches though, so keep an eye on other symptoms.
