Sinus Infection Treatment at StarMed Family & Urgent Care in Charlotte, NC
Sinus infections are among the most common ailments experienced, with an average of 16 to 20 percent of adults and children affected by the condition each year. A sinus infection, also termed sinusitis, can be divided into two categories: chronic and acute. While chronic sinus infections – or infections that last at least 12 weeks despite treatment – often require attention from an otolaryngology specialist, acute sinus infections can be easily treated by an urgent care medical professional.
