Hello
This could be that you still have a sinus infection
It could also be that you have some GERD or reflux ...acid into the mouth
It can also be that the sinus infection affected your smell, which makes the taste go funny.
I would return to the doc who gave you the antibiotics and go over these three possibilities.
good luck

Well I don't know? My is it possible I have a throat infection cause my throat just started feeling funny today!!
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 5 years ago.
Yes that is also possible but you just got done with antibiotics
Do not do any more
Your throat can be sore from GERD, and it would account for both the sore throat and the bad taste!
If you keep on doing antibiotics and there is no infection that you will simply make the problem worse.
You need to also make sure you do not have a yeast infection in your mouth given all of the antibiotic use
good luck again
