Child having sinus congestion, prescribed z-pac. Used warm compression, hot showers. Will antibiotic improve condition?

my 15 year old son had sinus congestion/ headache all last week (no runny nose or cough)... his pediatrician gave him a z-pac on Friday and suggested pseudoephrine ( sudafed ). He felt better on Saturday, but headache/pressure returned on Sunday. We have used warm compresses & hot showers. Will antibiotic make more improvement or do we go back? Any suggestions?

The antibiotics will improve that condition.
Take analgesics for headache such as paracetamol.
Sinusitis will improve slowly within 05 days period.
There is nothing to worry about give pseudoephedrine with the combination of an antibiotic such as augmentine that will improve all the symptoms and paracetamol for symptoms of headache.

I hope I am succesful in solving in your query if you have more you can ask me
Take care
