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.
