Our board-certified doctors are available seven days a week to treat you and your family. No appointment is ever needed, and our walk-in urgent care center is conveniently located with ample parking.

What is a sinus infection?

A sinus infection occurs when the sinuses in your skull become inflamed, which is why this condition is also sometimes called sinusitis. Many times, most patients suffer from a cold which leads to this infection. Your sinuses create mucus that helps keep your nose moisturized. When they become inflamed, they cannot properly drain. As liquid and mucus begin to pool in your sinuses, this gives bacteria a prime location to start multiplying and cause an infection.

How long does a sinus infection last?

Most sinus infections last for four weeks or less depending on how quickly you see a medical professional. Severe sinus infections can last for up to twelve weeks. This longer duration of infection usually occurs when initial prescribed medication is ineffective. Additional testing may be needed to determine the exact bacteria that is causing the infection so a more specific, and powerful antibiotic can be prescribed.

Chronic sinus infections are usually best handled by your primary care physician as this is often the result of other, underlying medical conditions.

What are the symptoms of a sinus infection? What should I look for if I suspect I am coming down with one?

Symptoms of a sinus infection can include:

  • Loss of smell
  • Stuffy nose with thick green or yellow mucus.
  • Tenderness on the sides of your nose.
  • Pain in your forehead near your sinuses.
  • Upper jaw and upper teeth pain.
  • Tenderness in your cheeks.
  • Pain around your upper eyes.
  • Pain around your eyelids
  • Neck pain
  • Earaches
  • Achiness at the top of your head.

Who is more at risk for a sinus infection?

Sinus infections can occur at any age. However, you are more likely to suffer from one if you have a cold or allergies that cause stuffiness in your nose. If you suffer from asthma, you are also statistically more likely to suffer from a chronic sinus infection.

How do you treat a sinus infection?

At AFC Urgent Care Duncan, once our board-certified doctors have diagnosed you with a sinus infection, we will prescribe you antibiotics. Since a sinus infection is caused by bacteria, this is the best way to alleviate your symptoms. Our doctors may also prescribe some pain relievers or decongestants if these symptoms are more severe than usual. A general antibiotic is usually enough to start alleviating your symptoms. However, if improvement does not appear, we may require additional tests to determine the exact bacteria causing your sinus infection.

AFC Urgent Care Duncan is located at 1667 E. Main Street Duncan, SC 29334. We are open on weekdays from 8 am to 8 pm and on weekends from 8 am to 5 pm.

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issue(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
