Dr. Ralph Morgan Lewis
Family Medicine

In brief: Sinus/resp infection

Sinus infxns not uncommonly take a couple weeks to resolve, even with antibiotics.
Which part of the respiratory tract was involved? Nose & throat? Or lungs? Uri's tend to resolve in 7-10 days; lower resp tract infxns may take couple weeks depending on how involved they were. After 2 weeks u should be feeling almost your normal self. If not, see doc again.
