|A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association looked at almost 250 people with sinus infections. In the study, the people with sinusitis were given antibiotics, steroids or a placebo. When it comes to symptoms lasting more than 10 days, it turns out neither antibiotics or steroids work any better than placebo. In all of the groups, about one-third of the patients got better.
So what is someone with sinusitis supposed to do?
"Time is our best tool in these cases. And so if we give it two weeks and the patient is not improving, then we should consider antibiotics," Dr. Itskowitz said. http://kdka.com/local/sinus.infectio....2.602685.html
I usually take Grapefruit Seed Extract. I bought it at Whole Foods and I take it 3x a day when I have a Sinus Infection. I did hear the recent news about Sinus infections and antibiotics but this has worked for me in the past.
Small warning~~~ this will probably be the grossest tasting stuff you ever put in your mouth.
