Prove fungus: Amphotericin B is an antifungal drug that is being used, sometimes inappropriately, for fungal infections of the sinuses. First, your doctor must prove by culture that you have a pathological fungus in your nose, that that fungus is truly causing a sinus infection. In our literature, the pendulum is moving away from fungal etiology of sinusitis. It is your nose that is burning, not your sinuses
