Depends: Any fevers or worsening symptoms? If everything is resolving, but just slowly, it may be your body just taking its time recovering from infection.

Timing: Sinusitis is about both symptoms and how long you've had the symptoms.

If you are really uncomfortable, see your doctor. 80% of sinusitis will get better without antibiotics. ...Read more
