Walk-In Sinus Infection Treatment in Waltham, MA
A sinus infection, or sinusitis, occurs when the sinuses become inflamed or swollen. While normally your sinuses are filled with air, they can become blocked and filled with fluid when you have a cold. Germs can grow in the fluid blocking your sinuses, causing an infection. If you’ve been feeling under the weather and think you have a sinus infection, you can receive prompt treatment at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Waltham, Massachusetts. We serve adults and children of all ages and are open seven days per week with extended evening hours.
Sinus Infection Symptoms
Sinusitis shares many of the same symptoms as the common cold, so it can be hard to distinguish these conditions from each other. Here are some of the symptoms that are present in both:
- Stuffy or runny nose
- Low-grade fever
- Facial pain
In many cases, treating a sinus infection is similar to that of a cold. You’ll want to rest, drink fluids, and take over-the-counter medication. However, if your symptoms haven’t improved within 10 days or you spike a fever over 101 degrees, you should visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for sinus infection treatment. We can offer a treatment protocol—which may include antibiotics if you have a bacterial sinus infection—to get you on the road to wellness.
