this is due to infection which follow from the floor of maxillary sinus..first give the antibiotics prophylaxis then open the tooth n remove the etiology of the invloved tooth.. .this infection can take near about 7days to cure under antibotic prophylaxis...gave amox + clav tds
If there is involved tooth then might possible that infection has spread from maxillary sinus to frontal sinus. If tooth is in condition that access opening can be performed then under antibiotic coverage do the opening. Kindly provide xray
