Sinus Squeeze Treatment
The following guidelines are suggested in treating sinus squeeze:
Oral antibiotics are usually recommended only if sinus pressure persists or if thick, infected discharge from the ear, nose, or mouth develops. If a patient uses antibiotics and needs to be exposed to sunlight, the person should use sunscreen (15 SPF or higher) because the antibiotics may make the skin sensitive to sunlight.
