Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 months ago.

OK

I understand the situation, your sinus infection is not clearing up despite treatment apparently.

What is your question for us exactly?

Also, have you had a CT scan of the sinuses/

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I have not suitable for surgery.
I just do t know what to do for relief.
I wish there was a pill to take for the head ache. Like I said I am not congested just pain and pressure
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 months ago.

What does the CT scan show?

We can not offer treatment here.

What antibiotic did you have?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It shjows the I have a deviated septum.
Zithromax
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 months ago.

OK

So technically you are a candidate for surgery.

The first think I suggest is a consult for an ear nose and throat specialist, and if that has been done, a second opinion.

Also: zithromax is no longer an appropriate antibiotic for sinusitis that is bacterial. There is too much resistence to the strep bacteria, which is one of the bacterial that can affect it.

Augmentin is the antibiotic of choice, and if penicillan allergic, and antibiotic such as doxycicline.

Finally, your doctors need to make sure this is infection, and not another process such as allergy, or autoimmune disease.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.
