      Hi I live in the UK and unfortunately I need to take antibiotics for a long lasting sinus problem.
      I don't want to take them but I think I have little choice after a ct scan revealed a blockage which my doctor thinks is bacterial.
      Anyway I have been pescribed erythromycin and I'm doing my homework. I think they are very ototoxic? Does anyone know of any relatively safe antibiotics I could ask for that will do the same job please?
      I really could do with some help!!!!!
