Anything: Your dizziness can have any cause at this time. Change in blood pressure especially when you change positions, known as orthostatic hypotension. Side effects of medication is possible too, especially dexametasone. I'd stop (it sounds an overkill to treat sinus/throat infection for that long with it). Also, make sure you drink plenty of fluids and take over-the-counter probiotic with your ab. ...Read more

Probably: The body has a day/night cycle so a mild elevated temperature at night midway thru infection is ok. Dexamethasone is a steroid used by some to reduce inflammation. Don't list age or other medical conditions but I advise caution in using this medication due to potential side effects and cross reaction to other medications. Give it a few more days but if not better contact your MD. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dexamethasone ...Read more

Some risk: Dexamethasome eyedrops have a small risk of glaucoma and cataract formation. It might also promote the growth of some microorganisms causing infection. But you can use it for 1-2 week bursts with little likelihood of harm. You might ask your ophthalmologist for a steroid with more limited side effects such as Lotemax (loteprednol) or fluorometholone which can be effective against your inflammations. ...Read more

Useless treatment: These antibiotics will not penetrate a chalazion. They are not worth the expense or time to treat this condition. Try using lots of heat - a washcloth under very warm (but not hot) water held over the chalazion for 4-5 minutes at least 5 times per day. If persistent more than one week of this treatment, then see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
