3 month sinus infection

I'm so desperate for any help!! I developed a sinus infection after having a cold for a few weeks. I have no insurance so I had to wait until my school started again so I could go to the clinic there. I've had acute sinus infections in the past but this is one of the full blown bacterial ones. I have tried the neti pot (it doesn't always even go through my nose), decongestants, antihistamines. I have been through a round of amox and am getting towards the end of augmentin. it's not working!! I'm so so so tired of being sick. My nose constantly oozes sticky green/yellow snot that smells like something died inside of my nose. it's embarassing and my fiance doesn't want to kiss me anymore. I feel like crying. I have no insurance so I can't just go to some specialist and get real help. I don't know what to do.

Re: 3 month sinus infection

Oh dear. Have you tried going back to the clinic at school? Do you qualify for any public assistance? I had very similar symptoms for 7 months. I remember thinking my dog pooped in the house & looked everywhere until I realized the odor was in my nose! I was horrified. I finally had a CT scan, which showed a sinus blockage & I needed surgery. Every case is different of course. Please don't give up. Some hospitals & doctors do take charity cases.
