Clindamycin For Sinus Infection
Not recommended: Clindamycin would probably work for a sinus infection, but it is best to take antibiotics under the direction of a doctor.

Saline rinse: The best treatment for an upper respiratory infection is to rinse your sinuses out with saline. Use either something like'simply saline' that shoots a continuous stream of saline or something like the 'netty pot' or the 'neil med sinus rinse'. Twice a day is a good place to start but it is only saline and it can be used a lot more often. Sleep is really what cures colds, so rest up.
Viral or bacterial: Most sinus infections are viral and will resolve with or without treatment. Fluids, analgesics and tincture of time. Serious bacterial sinus infections need to be evaluated by a physician and may need scans/cultures to appropriately treat. See your doctor is you have significant sinus pain, fever, visual changes, dental pain, ear pain, or other concerns.
Bacterial vs. Viral: Typically bacterial or viral in origin. Viruses tend to resolve on their own in a few days (think of the common cold) whereas bacterial infections persist longer than a week and/or there's a "double-worsening" where one starts to feel better, and then the symptoms relapse. Antibiotics like Azithromycin and Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) are used to treat bacterial sinus infections.See 1 more doctor answer
