Sinus infection and pregnancy?

I think i have a serious sinus infection under my left eye. Feels like iv been punched in the cheek! It been. We went to the fair on sunday and this started on the way home, im guessing its from all the dirt, dust and hay we were walking threw. What OTC medication can i take before i get to a doctor?

  • If it's allergies, I was approved to take benadryl. If it is an infection, you will need an antibiotic. Call your doctor and see if they can recommend something before you take any medication! Hope it clears up soon!

  • have you ever looked into neti pots? i am not sure if they still work if there is an infection though.
    i would always try no meds/ natural remedies first.
    good luck to you!
