SINUSITIS : Yes you should rest irrigate sinuses with saline/take a nasal spray like Nasonex (mometasone) and finish a 2-3week course of antibiotics ie bactrim/augmentin /cipro. I avoid abrupt changes in pressure. Ie flying/scuba/swimming if diving or snorkeling is undertaken. These activities may increase risk of worsening sinusitis and potentially rupturing ear drum.

Acute sinusitis: Common symptoms include purulent nasal discharge, nasal congestion, facial pain/pressure. Dental pain may be reported. Common colds and environmental allergies are risk factors for sinusitis. Symptoms that are present for 10 days could indicate a bacterial infection.
