Re: Do i have Allergy or Sinus infection?
I agree..it definately sounds like a sinus infection. Do you have any other symptoms? Sneezing, congestion, etc? If you sit down and lean forward like with your head between your knees, does your face/sinuses feel full? Docs always have me do that when I go in for a sinus infection.
Also, five days worth of antibiotics for a sinus infection is NOT enough, the usual prescription for a sinus infection is 14 days worth of antibiotics! Although, my doctor recently told me that some think even 14 days isn't enough. Uhmm, that could possibly be why the Zithromax didn't work, or maybe your body is tolerant to it. I usually get a sinus infection once or twice a year, and usually Augmentin is the antibiotic of choice from the different docs I've seen. Last month I had a sinus infection and the Augmentin didn't really work as well as usual so I was placed on 21 days worth and a decongestant. The sinus infection did get better for a few weeks and yesterday I was diagnosed with another sinus infection. Two so far this year!!! This time my doc put me on Ciprofloxacin. Not sure how it works yet as I've only taken two doses.
But yea, I definately think it's a sinus infection.
