Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today.

I'm sorry your son has a sinus infection. A few days of antibiotic is not sufficient to resolve a sinus infection. Typically he will need to take antibiotics for 2 or even 3 weeks to get total resolution of the infection. May I suggest he restart the doxycycline and take the entire amount given. Also, purchase over the counter Nasal Saline Spray and have him spray his nose often, every 2 hours to keep it moist. This should resolve after completing his prescription.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your son's medical problem(s) are resolved soon and he feels better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned your 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

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.

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.
