Sinus infection
How long should it take for my antibiotic to start working? I've been on amoxicillin for 4 days and I still have yellow stuff coming out when I blow my nose.

Are you washing your nose using a neti pot? It will help you get well and enable your antibiotic to work better and faster.  If you are prone to sinus problems, you must wash your nose with warm salt water at least once a day. I wash my nose every day and have for 5 years. My sinus health has never been better. To get over a sinus infection wash your nose 4-5 times a day.

Nasal rinsing with warm saline is the best/safest/cheapest/easiest most
theraputic thing you can do for good sinus health.
I definitely think that you would find salt water rinses of your nose
very helpful.  you feel better right away and over the long haul--it
makes it easier to breathe --it makes the inside of your nose feel
cleaner--it eliminates any pressure in your head.
it is a GODSEND! You can not hurt yourself with
irrigation and I would sure try it if I were you.  Irrigation
is extremely useful for preventing mucus build up as it rinses mucus
from the nasal cavity and sinuses. It also restores the cilia
  which are the natural cleaners of the nose.

you should ask your doctor to test the slime inside of your nose to see wich bacteria is active and on base of that give you anitbiotics.. amoxilin is all round good antibiotics BUT it is possible he doesnt work for this...if is green then possible pseudomonas infection you have... amoxilin then doesnt help...!!!
