Taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection & a couple days after I noticed swelling, itching, & discharge in my vagina. Now my symptoms seem milder.?

Yeast infection: Unfortunately, antibiotics like amoxicillin not only kill the bacteria that in your case caused the sinus infection, but also the lactobacillae present in the vagina. That in turn promoted the growth of candida, I suspect, and you ended up with a yeast infection. If your vaginal symptoms are ceasing, your lactobacilli may be recovering. ...Read more

I woke up with a blurry spot in my left eye. No other symptoms like numbness, pain, filmy eyeetc. I may have a sinus infection. Should I be concerned?

Blurred vision: Blurred vision can be due to any number of things. If you woke up with blurry vision, it's possible your eye was open during the night and it is now dry, causing blurry vision, especially if you normally sleep on the same side.

I have a marble-sized lump beneath n 2 the left of my nostril n w/ other symptoms believe I have a sinus infection. What natural remedies do u sugges?

Not sinusitis.: A marble-sized lump beneath your left nostril is not a sign of sinusitis. It may be a benign lesion such as a lipoma or fibroma. But have it diagnosed by an ENT doctor or plastic surgeon. Sinusitis does not produce this. What other symptoms do you have that would lead you to believe you have sinusitis? A lump in the upper lip needs a diagnosis rather than looking for natural remedies. ...Read more

I feel all symptoms of a sinus infection what ways can I kill it before it takes full affect please help thank you?

Power of sleep: Your body 'wants' to be in good health-but with our busy lifestyles, often we don't do the right things. I would suggest to start with a good nights sleep -you may even be running a sleep deficit. Try for 10 hrs. Eat well too-this is no time to 'diet' -chicken soup is recommended. The liquid in that too is good for the mucous-to keep it clear and flowing and reduce chances of disease. See MD if Qs ...Read more
