ER says allergy, not sinus infection. Gave steroids, Flonase, and anti-his. If they are wrong, and it IS infection, will the steroids make it worse?

In brief: Likely not

It will take large doses of steroid for months to affect the immune system. On the other hand, I am not in favor of giving oral steroid for nasal allergies.
