What is sinusitis?

Sinusitis refers to inflammation of the sinuses, air cavities located in your face around your nose and eyes. These cavities normally allow mucus to drain and air to circulate, but when they become blocked or infected, inflammation occurs, leading to a range of unpleasant symptoms. Common culprits behind sinusitis include colds, allergies, and bacterial infections.

How do I know if I need antibiotics for sinusitis?

Our pharmacists are trained to recognize sinusitis symptoms and can advise you on the best course of action. While antibiotics aren’t always the answer, if your symptoms are severe or persist for over 10-14 days, antibiotics might be necessary. The Pharmacy First Sinusitis service can get you on the path to feeling better by assessing your symptoms and prescribing a treatment suitable for you. Visit Touchwood Pharmacy in Streatham.

How much does sinusitis treatment cost at Touchwood Pharmacy?

If you’re eligible for NHS care, the Pharmacy First service is completely free, including consultations, assessments, and any recommended over-the-counter medications. You’ll only pay the standard NHS prescription charge if antibiotics are prescribed.
