Sinus infections not helped by antibiotics - Cold and flu- msnbc.com: "Patients usually got better in two weeks with or without meds, study says"
If you are someone, or know someone (as I do) who has allergies or other sinus problems and seems to get sinus infections regularly, this should be very interesting and a head's up. The chronic sufferer I know is totally denying this information, based on his own experience, and who am I to say? I get one infection a decade. But I know pain med didn't touch the pain of a sinus infection headache, and if antibiotics didn't help me get better faster, at least it made me feel as if it did.
