It depends on the cause.
A sinus infection can be caused by a virus, bacteria, or fungus.
Your doctor will be able to make a diagnosis for you.
In the mean time you should not take the amoxicillin. You increase the risk of developing bacterial resistance if used inappropriately.

If the infection is caused by bacteria amoxicillin may be prescribed.
