Thank you for your query.
In essence sinusitis
is a bone infection
therefore it is often necessary to have a extended course of antibiotics. When your sinuses
start draining it feels as though the congestion is worse but is actually a progression . The problem with ones sinuses is that the drainage
openings are in the roof of the sinuses which meens they do not drain properly when standing upright, and you need to bend forward with your head hanging to facilitate drainage. This is best done in a warm steam environment I.e. bathing or showering ( you may formally steam). If your sinuses do not drain with this often an ENT surgeon has to take the patient to theater and surgically drain the sinuses. It is important to see this treatment through as the complications of sinusitis may be grave. Also avoid any irritants to the sinuses like smoking
and aerosols. I trust this information helps you. Kind regards.
