    You need to see a doctor. It sounds like you have a sinus infection, and you might need antibiotics.

    Go back to the doctor. Amoxicillin is usually not effective for sinus infections. If you have one, you need something stronger

    prednisone helps shrink the sinus tissues, so that they can drain better, so yes it can help. Usually for sinus infections I've been given Cipro, Augmentin, or Leviquin.
