Hi Doc I have been battling a pretty nasty sinus infection.

Resolved Question:

Hi Doc

I have been battling a pretty nasty sinus infection. I have post nasal drip, pressure on my sinuses, headache in the back of my head, and a sore throat. My doctor put me on a 14 day period of amox/clav and a steroid. After taking it the 1st day I woke up the 2nd day feeling better. Since then I have finished my antibiotic (yesterday) and the symptoms appear to be coming back. My question is what is causing this and what will my doctor do next?

No I have not gotten to that next. I have been sick for 4-5 weeks. I just want to know why Icannot kick this sinus infection and what is the next step in all fo this.

Your symptoms are coming back probably your infection is not getting cleared properly.

You need to get CT-scan of sinuses done.

This will exactly tell extent and kind of infection you are having.

After that further treatment can be decided.

Since you still have symptoms your doctor can prescribe another course of antibiotics.
