Sinusitis Answer A64468
Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It usually takes 2-4 weeks. If problem still persists then either antibiotic should be changed or antral washout should be done.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
