Likely correct: Your assessment of your condition sounds correct. Please stay hydrated and see your health care provider if your symptoms persist or worsen.

Need to be seen: abx would be the easiest way to treat a sinus infection. but if you want to do something at home, I would recommend sinus rinse 2-3 times per day. that should also clear a sinus infection as well, but it will take longer
