Sinus infection after bike accident

Edited , 2 users are following.


Hope you are well. I'm trying this out because I am currently in Southeast Asia, on an island, with limited access to healthcare. I recently had a motorbike accident in Vietnam, which resulted in a broken hand, a few stitches on my knee and a painful neck (which passed after a 5 days). 3 days after the accident I started having fever, I went to the hospital and they informed that I have a throat infection and puss could be seen in my sinuses. Started on antibiotics for 14 days, which I have just finished. However my sinuses still seem inflamed and my head is very painful whenever I make a move. I am not sure if this is normal or how can I improve my condition, given my location.

many thanks in advance for your advice.

kind regards.

    I had an infection that did not respond to 2 different antibiotics but the 3rd one worked. I can't remember the name as it was quite a long time ago and it was frustrating to have to try to find one that worked for the problem that I had. Good luck.
