3. Congestion

Does your face feel full and nose congested? One reason could be a sinus infection troubling you. As the sinus pathways get congested with mucus, drainage becomes difficult, which further leads to pressure on the face. The inflamed sinus can restrict the way you breathe through the nose. With drainage, the infection may result in swelling of sinuses and a block in the nasal passages. A lot of people would think that dry air can treat a runny nose, but it doesn't help. Dry air further irritates the membranes. It would be best to use a vaporizer or nasal saline spray to clear the congestion. Congestion of the nasal passage can cause a reduced sense of taste.
