Stop calling a cold sinusitis!
What is it about?
Overuse of antibiotics is unfortunately all too common. Most antibiotics for what is called "sinusitis" are a waste since the symptoms are primarily those of an ordinary viral cold.
Why is it important?
Antibiotics are not free of side effects. Adding an antibiotic for viral infection essentially just adds insult to injury. Not only is the patient suffering from the cold, but side effects of antibiotics are then added.
