Frequently Asked Questions

Given the rise in antibiotic resistance, when do you recommend a patient uses antibiotics for sinus infections?

Doctors on Amwell follow the standard of care and recommendations provided by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) with regard to treatment and antibiotic prescription. There are specific symptoms we look for as well as symptom duration to consider when deciding whether or not to prescribe a patient antibiotics. By nature, sinus infections take a long time to heal; antibiotics are not always the recommended form of treatment.
