A sinus infection usually occurs after you’ve had a bad cold or other upper respiratory infection. The infection, also known as sinusitis, is an inflammation of the sinuses that can cause them to get blocked and filled with fluid. If you begin to experience upper respiratory symptoms, and suspect you may have a sinus infection, visit the walk-in clinic at AFC Urgent Care Paramus for professional care.
Our team of licensed medical providers are experienced in treating a variety of general illnesses, including sinus infections. We can provide an accurate diagnosis of your symptoms and offer a treatment plan for all patients – no appointment necessary.
The symptoms of sinus infections can vary from mild to severe. The infection can feel like a lingering sinus pressure or pain that occurs after your other upper respiratory symptoms have subsided.
Symptoms that may indicate a sinus infection include:
To diagnose a sinus infection, a medical provider will ask a series of questions to best understand the specific symptoms in each case. When you visit AFC Paramus, a provider will conduct a physical exam to inspect your ears, nose, and throat to look for signs of inflammation and infection. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, it's possible that you may be recommended for blood work to determine whether your sinus infection is caused by bacteria or a virus.
If your sinus infection is bacterial, antibiotics could help alleviate symptoms and treat the infection. If your sinus infection is viral, antibiotic treatment will not help. In this case, we may recommend nasal spray, ibuprofen, or over-the-counter decongestants to treat your sinus infection. However severe your sinusitis is, our team has you covered.
