Sinus infections are common throughout the winter and spring. Your sinuses are air pockets located around your face and the ones located in your forehead, cheekbones and along your nose can develop periodic infections. You are most vulnerable to a sinus infection after a cold, the flu or experiencing symptoms of your seasonal allergies, when fluid is more prone to getting trapped in the cavities.Call (215) 935-6777

After determining the type of sinus infection you have, your doctor will be able to figure out the best way to treat it. If your sinus infection is stemming from a bacterial infection, you will need to be prescribed antibiotics.
