How do I get rid of a sinus infection fast?
Unfortunately, sinus infections can often last for more than a week, depending on the person and the type of sinusitis they have. The fastest way to get rid of a sinus infection is to visit a skilled doctor who can accurately assess your condition and make treatment recommendations. Treating sinusitis at home is certainly possible, but by taking the time to see an experienced physician who can diagnose your sinus infection using nasal endoscopy, sinus cultures, and perhaps even imaging studies, you will ensure you have all the information necessary to properly treat your sinusitis, so you can recover quickly. If you have symptoms of a sinus infection that lasts for a few days or longer, it is always best to see a doctor. AFC Urgent Care offers walk-in clinic hours at 5 convenient locations 7 days a week, so you can receive appropriate medical care quickly and easily.
How can I treat a sinus infection at home?
Home remedies for a sinus infection are much the same as those for a cold, flu, or respiratory infection. Rest is the most important part of any recuperation plan. It is also important to ensure you get enough fluids in the forms of water, juice, or even broth-based soups. Using a saline spray or humidifier to moisten your sinus cavities can be helpful, as can several over-the-counter decongestant medications. Using a warm compress or steam bath on your face can provide temporary relief of facial pain caused by increased pressure in your sinus cavities from mucus build up.
What is the best antibiotic for a sinus infection?
There are many different antibiotics that can be used against bacterial sinusitis. One of the most commonly prescribed is amoxicillin. However, your doctor may prescribe azithromycin, cefaclor, ciprofloxacin, clarithromycin, loracarbef, sulfamethoxazole, or trimethoprim, depending on your exact needs. If you are prescribed an antibiotic for your sinus infection, it is imperative that you continue taking your medication until your entire course has been finished. Even if your symptoms go away, if you stop taking your antibiotic prematurely, your infection may not be totally resolved and your symptoms could return, only to begin the entire cycle of misery over.
How long can it take for a sinus infection to go away?
The length of your illness will depend on a variety of factors including the type of infection and your own body’s immune system. On average, a viral sinus infection can be expected to last anywhere from 5-7 days. For a bacterial sinus infection, you can expect to experience symptoms for at least 7-10 days, perhaps even longer. By visiting an experienced physician who can diagnose your symptoms, you will be able to approach your sinusitis with an effective treatment plan that will help you recover as quickly as possible.
