In brief: It depends

On whether you have an acute infection or a chronic infection.
It also depends on many variables including the cause of your infection, your nasal / sinus architecture, whether you smoke, family history and other medical issues.

Concomitant allergies may be a confounder. Sinus CT or ENT evaluation may be in order if symptoms not improved in 2 weeks.
