Sinus infections produce severe sinus headaches, sometimes fevers, sore throats from post nasal drip, sneezing and yellow/green mucous.
Allergy symptoms are sinus headaches (they can be severe but it doesn't normally feel like an elephant is sitting on your face), itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing, sore throat, post nasal drip and ear pain.
If the pain is real bad when you press on your sinus area and you have discolored discharge then that is usually a sign of an infection.
