Sinusitis: Sinusitis often requires 2-3 weeks of an effective antibiotic like levaquin or augmentin therapy. Your chest soreness may simply be from prior bronchitis and prolonged coughing. If you have a persistent dry cough, take a cough suppressant syrup like robitussinDM or even phernergan with codeine. Discuss this with your MD or consult an otolayngologist.
