Sinusitis: A sinus bacterial infection following a viral upper respiratory tract infection may be the problem. This would require prolonged treatment with an effective antibiotic like augmentin or levaquin. An Otolaryngologist would be helpful for diagnosis and advice about treatment. A ct scan of the paranasal sinuses may be ordered.
