Is doxycycline 100 mg good to take for a sinus infection?

Is doxycycline 100 mg good to take for a sinus infection?

On Doxycycline for malaria prophlaxis. Doc asked to take amoxyciline for skin infection. 
Is it OK to stop doxy while I'm on amoxy only 5days?

Go back to dr.: Do not stop doxycycline if you are still at risk for malaria (ie still in malarious area, or returned within last 4 wks). Amoxicillin is not compatible with doxy, your doc should prescribe a different antibiotic. Be sure to inform him that you are currently taking doxy. Amoxicillin will not kill malaria parasites in the blood. ...Read more
