what is this sinus discharge from, is it normal
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
should i go to er

That's obviously a sign of a bacterial sinus infection but the Z pak may cover it

Unless you're running a high fever and have a severe headache there's no need for the ER right now

If the problem persists until Monday you may need a second antibiotic from your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! 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.
