      Moms a nurse and I go to her when I have something go on and she's pretty sure, I haven't made an appointment yet due to I've been on other antibiotics and after they are done I have to see him anyways so I'm waiting and I always have sinus problems Round this time of year. I've had sinus problems for about a month and a week give or take.

    If you are already on antibiotics and showing symptoms for more than a month just ask to be refered to the ENT. On this web page you can see than the maximal length of a typical acute sinuses is 21 days. However, having sinuses at any time of the year always is not normal and you do not have to take it as a normal think, sinuses are not a cold or flu. They are just repeated for a reason. However laugh at me but if you have a tooth ache better go to the dentist, tooth infection may cause sinuses too. Tell us how'd go please.

      I've been on antibiotics for other reasons and those don't fight sinus issues. But where I live, sinus problems have been a huge problem but Mother Nature doesn't know what she's doing. It'll be nice one day and freezing with snow the next.

    there are bacterial sinus infection and virus sinus infection, Antibiotics do fight the first one but of course does not have any effect on the second one which is the most common. Anyway the point if either way after 21 days is a subacute sinusitis and you need to see an ENT, Where are you with this nasty weather? Scotland? lol

    I have had around 4  bouts of sinus infections acute and subacute per year since the 90s, doctors played with me withouth  providing solution until I read the UK, Canadian and american guidelines and I forced a british doctor to sign a paper laying out my treatment for the future because my case was not in the UK care guideline. Later on with that knowledge I cherrypick treatments within the UK health care and private and I have no symptoms today. So no, I am not a doctor but I was forced to study a lot about my sickness in order to find cure. Btw cured by doctors (better ones than the first one I had) so I am not here to sell you any crap. Finally all what I said your can chek it out yourself as proper scientist base statements. But if you do not like being told that you are not right so bye bye and recover soon
