What should I do with a 4 week old sinus infection?


4 weeks ago, I had a cold which caused a sinus infection. I went to the doctor and was prescribed amoxicillin for 10 days. The symptoms mostly went away (not completely) however, over the last three days, I've experienced a resurgence of symptoms. I am not in much pain and would prefer not to go back to the doctor and receive more antibiotics. Does anyone have any suggestions for getting over sinus infections without antibiotics? Or should I just suck it up and go to the doctor?
----------

try steam inhalation twice daily for one weak.inhalation could be with vicks ,tincture benjoin or Simply plain water.  (+ info)

How do you know when I sinus infection goes too far?


I had a real bad sinus infection 2 years ago. I had to go to the ER. The doctors suspected that the sinus infection may have caused a brain abscess. I didn't really feel any different than I normally do except I had a high fever and chills. But they said it can come on as something very very gradual that can sneak up on you. Also My mental health began to decline after I first started noticing my sinus problem. Could there be a link between the two?

What is the best over the counter medicine for sinus headaches?


I have chronic sinus headaches and I am on lots of Rxs for allergies/sinus but they do not help the headaches.
----------

I have chronic sinus problems and the only thing that helps me is to do as saline rinse a minimum of once a day. (OTC and prescriptions tend to dry me out so much I get really bad bloody noses…so I avoid them.)

If you are having a lot of problems, there's a product called Alkalol. Here’s what it looks like: http://www.westburyonline.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=19299&HS=1

If you go to a Target pharmacy (or even some of the larger grocery stores) they sell it. Many times they keep it behind the counter so you just have to ask the pharmacist for it.

I use this only occasionally because it does pack a wallop. Nothing painful but it certainly does clear you out!!  (+ info)

How soon does medicine for a sinus infection start working?


I'm taking cefuroxime axetil. My only symptom of a sinus infection is hives, and I can't wait for them to go away.

I take it twice a day for 2 weeks and have taken 3 pills so far.

When should it kick in?
----------

It takes 3 days roughly to start feeling the effects.  (+ info)

What should I do for my sinus infection?


What should I do for my sinus infection? I have major headaches and sensitivity to light. I am extremely tired.
As of now, I am on:
-Amoxicilyn (sp?)
-Rhinocort
-Singulair(for asthma)
-Advil cold and sinus
-And frequent sinus rinses

I have been to my doctor, and she recommended the above.

I am going to an ENT next week, and probably getting CAT scans

What "at-home" remedies should I do?
----------

I use to work for an ENT. Go to Walgreen's, walmart, cvs where ever and pick up a sinus rinse kit. You will have to mix the contents in the box with luke warm water and while you are in the shower, stand bent over and flush out your sinuses with the included syringe. It may sound really gross, but it does work.   (+ info)

You need to boost your immune system through eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Get some sun without sunscreen. This promotes your body's production of Vitamin D which is essential for excellent health. Boost your intake of Vitamin C through supplements and foods. Read the book Stop Growing Older...Grow Younger for many, many effective solutions for vital, healthy living.

Get some essential oils from Young Living. Thieves oil will fight any viral or bacterial infection. Put a couple drops on your throat lymph nodes, on your chest over your bronchial tubes, on the bottoms of your feet on the lung points (bend your foot and put the oil in the hollow of the foot), in your tea or hot chocolate (use a ceramic mug), or in a pot of hot water (inhale the steam). Eucalyptus oil in that hot water will help open your sinuses and bronchial tubes.  (+ info)

What should i take for my sinus infection?


My doctor told me to take some over-the-counter medicines for this sinus infection im starting to get. Which is better, Sudafed or Mucinex? I also would like to get something that wouldn't make me to drowsy.

A sinus infection should be treated with antibiotics and I would also take Mucinex. It really does help.  (+ info)

Where can I find a graphical image of the human sinus cavity and throat?


My sinuses have been dramatically draining during the past two weeks so I have had a tickled throat all this time.
Rather than continuing to take antihistamine tabs (which do dry things out) I want to SEE what all is happening inside my nose / throat that cause this irritation.
I'm seeking images of the human sinus cavity and throat.
Thanks for images or links.

I google searched and have posted the link below.
