for the med. then my primary says that does not work for sinus. Wonder what you suggest.
Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 5 months ago

Sinus infections can be difficult to treat. This is in large part because the blood supply can't reach everywhere and the bacteria can thrive on the nutrients there. Recalcitrant cases may require 3-4 weeks of a broad spectrum antibiotic (eg. Augmentin, Lovenox), occasionally even longer. Cases that keep coming back frequently require a surgical procedure to enlarge the tiny holes (ostia) that drain the sinuses.

The ENT doctors normally do this, and it can make a big difference, particularly in those who have persistent risk factors such as diabetes, allergies, rheumatologic conditions, etc.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
