sinusitis

introduction

Mx of acute sinusitis

  • broad spectrum antibiotics such as Augmentin Due Forte (adults)
  • PLUS a short course of oral corticosteroids such as prednisolone 25-50mg/day in adults 1)
  • consider home sinus self-irrigation with saline

  • ~20% of patients having CT brain for headache or mild CHI will have a CT report of “chronic sinusitis” - this finding without acute URTI should probably NOT warrant Rx and is probably NOT the cause of an acute headache 2)
