In brief: Sinus infections

Sinusitis sometimes becomes chronic and may nit go away without treatment.
See an ENT specialist for a definitive diagnosis and treatment.

Usually a sinus infection will clear on it's own in 14 - 21 days. If symptoms of a head cold last longer than 10 days, you may have a sinus infection. Antibiotics are secondary to medications that help open up the nose and sinuses.
