What is the best treatment for sinus pain and congestion? Is it antibiotics? Most often, no. In fact, there is little evidence to support the use of penicillin, amoxicillin, and other antibiotics for the treatment of sinusitis.
The overuse of antibiotics in such cases can lead to the creation of antibiotic resistant bacteria, compounding the problem. Plus, antibiotics may reduce the infection the first time but it will also kill off all of your good bacteria [which you need for a healthy immune system]. This is going to leave you more susceptible to bigger and more frequent infections.
