Bummer!! I used to have a couple sinus infections every year. Using nasal saline washes has really diminished the infections. Continue the nasal salines washes twice a day every day. Very important to keep it up. Also take probiotics during and after antibiotics to get your stomach back on track. You need to restart you stomach and digestion after the antibiotics have done their work. Good luck and feel better. Namaste

So sad to hear you are poorly, I can really sympathise as I am recovering from a 5 week bout of chest infection (even shared it with hubby) seems to have taken so long this time maybe it's due to our overly wet UK weather it seems every other person is suffering.

I hope you are feeling better soon. I always ask why when it comes to meds, starting or stopping. Hopefully your new doctor will take better care to explain things to you.
