Our expert says:
Sometimes a sinus infection takes 10-14 days to clear up and a second course of antibiotics is often needed. It helps to rinse your nose with salt water (saline) solution (buy at Clicks or make your own - 1 cup lukewarm water with 1/2 teaspoon salt). Sniff it up and blow it out until the water comes out clear - 2 to 3 times a day. This gets rid of the post nasal drip and bad smelling mucus.
