I am so sorry that you were having these nasty problems with your sinuses. I used to get several sinus infections per year and I know how miserable they can be.
The following Friday I went to the allergist for my regular check-up and he did an X-ray and said that my Sinus Infection was still there and that Amoxacillin isn't a good drug so he gave me a Steroid, nasal spray, and and allergy pill that I will be taking for months.
Amoxicillin is excellent against many forms of sinus infection. I am puzzled by your allergist. He stopped you from taking an antibiotic, which kills bacterial infections, and instead put you on a steroid, a nasal spray and an allergy pill, neither of which can kill a bacterial infection.
It sounds like your allergist is treating your for allergies and not for an infection.
Well I finished all the medicine for my sinus infection and what do you know?! I have it again this weekend! I work at a daycare and there is always sick kids. But if I've taken so many prescriptions shouldn't it be gone by now?! I'm tired of laying in bed every weekend feeling horrible Anyone know what's going on??
