Acute sinusitis is a common condition affecting up to 10% of UK adults. Symptoms can vary in severity, ranging from a painful condition to a mild irritation.
Usually, acute sinusitis is a self-limiting condition that does not need antibiotics, but persistent or severe cases may need them. Some cases of chronic sinusitis can even require surgery.
Although there are many causes of facial pain, if you have persistent facial pain it may be worth seeing a GP to learn if you have viral or bacterial acute sinusitis to get the right treatment.
Our doctors can treat sinusitis. Book an online GP appointment today and start feeling better.
Alternatively you can refer yourself to a specialist Doctor without seeing a GP first.
