Expert Care for Sinus Infections at PrimeCare Urgent Care

Sinus infections, also known as sinusitis, can cause discomfort and impact daily activities. At PrimeCare Urgent Care, we specialize in diagnosing and treating sinus infections to help relieve symptoms and promote recovery.

Understanding Sinus Infections

Sinus infections occur when the nasal passages become inflamed or infected, often due to viruses, bacteria, allergies, or other factors. Symptoms may include:

  • Nasal Congestion: Difficulty breathing through the nose.
  • Facial Pain or Pressure: Around the eyes, forehead, or cheeks.
  • Post-Nasal Drip: Excess mucus draining down the throat.
  • Headache: Especially over the forehead or around the eyes.
  • Cough: Often worse at night or when lying down.

Evaluation and Diagnosis

When you visit PrimeCare Urgent Care for sinus infection symptoms, our experienced healthcare providers will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the cause and severity of your condition. This may include reviewing your medical history, performing a physical examination, and assessing symptoms such as nasal discharge or facial tenderness.

Treatment Options

Treatment for sinus infections focuses on relieving symptoms and addressing the underlying cause. Depending on the diagnosis, treatment options may include:

  • Medications: Such as antibiotics for bacterial infections, decongestants, nasal sprays, or antihistamines for allergies.
  • Nasal Irrigation: Using a saline solution to flush out nasal passages and relieve congestion.
  • Pain Relief: Over-the-counter medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to alleviate discomfort.
  • Home Remedies: Such as steam inhalation, humidifiers, or warm compresses to reduce sinus pressure.

When to Seek Medical Attention

While most sinus infections can be managed with self-care and over-the-counter treatments, it’s essential to seek medical attention if symptoms persist for more than 7-10 days, worsen over time, or are accompanied by high fever, severe headache, or swelling around the eyes.
