Dr. Love,If I had a fungal infection of the sinuses (not the really serious kind) what kind of discharge do you think I'd have. Clear???Here's why I'm worried. I've had more than my share of antibiotics in the last year.Around May I started feeling a tiny bit "rough" in my larynx off and on. That lasted all summer. No noticeable post nasal drip though.But what really worries me is that when I took the Augmentin for the yellow/bloody postnasal drip, it cleared the bacterial (yellow) part immediately and left something I'd never had before--a copious clear postnasal drip. I still have it between bouts of green/bloody stuff. I think that the Augmentin was the final straw (I'd taken Doxycyline just a month before) and it allowed fungus to grow in my sinuses (obviously not the very serious black kind).What do you think of all of this?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
