Lady Jan's daughter has a sinus infection

My daughter has the sinus infection that will not die!

My daughter had a sinus infection and then just finished the course of antibiotic just before she caught the flu last week. Then this week she had the same symptoms of a sinus infection yet again!

This is copied from the article from the link attached to the title above:
A sinus infection can cause a headache or pressure in the eyes, nose, cheek area, or on one side of the head. A person with a sinus infection may also have a cough, a fever, bad breath, and nasal congestion with thick nasal secretions. Sinusitis is categorized as acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long term, the most common type).

My daughter has all the sytoms exempt for the fever and her mucus discharge is green--now isn't that lovely? The doctor proscribed amoxicillin which if I understand it is just penicillin. He wants her to take a double dose of the amoxicillin for two days then regular dose for the next ten days there after. That's pretty strong so I guess she has a bad infection, and I hope this does the trick!

My poor girl--having a sinus infection is very uncomfortable with the head ache and the sinus pressure.

Hi Jan ~~ Thanks for your stop by

I very seldom have fever but amen to the headaches and general misery. I have days when I can't bend over because of the pressure.

I think life in our beloved central valley may have something to do with it. We seem to be clogged up much of the time and it can't all be colds.

amoxicillen is a form of penicillen. Ted is allergic to Penicillen, and was given Amox, and yup, she broke out in a rash...

hope your girl is feeling better soon!!!

Hi Merle,

Welcome to Lady Jan, and my daughter is doing a little better today thank you for asking.

Hi Ann,

It is our central valley, it because we are shapped like a bowl and all the nastiness get blown around in here. Not only allergies but our valley has a record for ashma, which I have as well.

Hi Ipodmomma,

I'm sorry to hear about your Ted, that terrible. I hope she is alright now?

My daughter is feeling a bit better, but we did just start the amoxicillian. We'll see how it goes.

Later Your Lady Jan~
