Unfortunately, part of your question is cut off. But if antibiotics help for a few days and then your symptoms return, then you probably have chronic sinusitis. Its best in these situations to visit an ENT doctor who may use different medications, get allergy testing, and/or a CT scan of your sinuses. in greater than 50% of patients, long term antibiotics (for 3 to 6 weeks) coupled with other decongestants/steroids and followed by aggressive allergy care, patients will find relief of chronic sinusitis. The other patients may go on to sinus surgery to relieve the symptoms.
