On treatment for sinus infection. Histroy of asthama and smoking marijuana. Using vaporizer for marijuana dangerous?

Is it dangerous to use a vaporizer to consume marijuana while undergoing treatment for a sinus infection? (Amoxicillin, Sudafed, Ibuprofen + lots of fluid) This is my 2nd day of taking the meds, have been feeling the symptoms for about 10-14 days now. Feeling much better with only 5 amoxicillin. Could using a vaporizer for marijuana worsen symptoms, prolong the sinus infection, or turn it into something more serious? If it's at all pertinent, I have asthma but generally combust (smoke) marijuana with no noted side effects.

Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic
Chronic inhalation of marijuana fumes is known to irritate bronchial mucosa and cause pulmonary pathology. It increases asthma, bronchitis, pharyngitis. some studies have shown that marijuana smoke has carcinogenic effect. The fumes have irritating effect on epithelium and possibly could increase sinusitis too. It is better u get treated for the addiction and stop the habit which has dangerous long term effects.
Thanks and regards
