How to Treat a Sinus Infection

Sinus infection treatment varies from patient to patient depending on whether or not they have a viral or bacterial sinus infection. Viral sinus infections often clear up on their own within seven days and home remedies offer the best relief. These include:

  • Over-the-counter decongestants
  • Saline nose sprays
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen
  • Rest
  • Hydration, especially hot lemon water or herbal teas
  • Warm compresses

Bacterial sinus infections are much different. While they have the same symptoms as their viral counterpart, they do not typically respond to home remedies. In most cases, the best treatment for a bacterial sinus infection is antibiotics.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
