What are the symptoms of a fungal sinus infection?

Sinusitis may be caused by either a fungal or bacterial infection, and the symptoms may be the same, notes the UPMC. Symptoms of chronic sinusitis caused by either a bacterial or fungal infection include bad breath, loss of the sense of smell, a cough that is worse at night, fatigue, fever, a headache that manifests as pressure behind the eyes or a tender face, a toothache, a stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, post-nasal drip and generally feeling unwell, according to the National Institutes of Health.
