I have a sinus infection i started augmentin wedsnday and my eyelid is still a lil swollen when will the swelling go down please help?

I have a sinus infection i started augmentin wedsnday and my eyelid is still a lil swollen when will the swelling go down please help?

Probably.: If your eyelid continues to swell, especially if the eye becomes red you would need to be re-evaluated to rule out an orbital cellulitis. There are bacteria that can be resistant to Augmentin and if the condition continues to progress the antibiotic may need to be switched. Worst case scenario is an orbital cellulitis requiring intravenous antibiotics. ...Read more

I had sinuplasty 5 days ago, i feel like I have a sinus infection again! i don't know if it's still swollen, or if things are trying to drain! ?

Postop symptoms: You just had sinus surgery 5 days ago. Even though you had a more minimal procedure, you had sinus surgery. You will have some pain and definitely it is swollen in there for a while. Use a sinus rinse bottle at least twice per day, take tylenol or stronger pain med at night. Call your surgeon. It would not be unusual to stay on antibiotics for a while after surgery. ...Read more

Think I have a sinus infection. My right actual eyeball is starting to look swollen and bigger then the other. Can it be from sinus infection?

Think I have a sinus infection. My right actual  eyeball is starting to look swollen and bigger then the other. Can it be from sinus infection?

Possible; concerning: The usual sinus infection should not cause your eye to protrude out/make it swollen, unless abscess forming and pushing up thus pushing the eyeball forward. Because of much inflammation, some swelling/edema of the lid is common. Since your description is quite concerning due to eye involvement, i recommend seeing doc asap for eval and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
