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.

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.
