What is the outlook for sinusitis?
Although sinusitis can be uncomfortable and painful, most cases clear in 7-10 days without visiting a doctor or using prescription medications. Severe or long-term symptoms could be a sign of another issue, such as a bacterial infection, medical condition, allergy or structural abnormality in your nose or sinuses.
