Sinusitis in children

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses caused by an infection that develops from a cold or nasal allergy. During a cold or nasal allergy, the linings of the sinuses swell and can accumulate bacteria leading to a sinus infection. A child with sinusitis may have these symptoms:
 
· Nasal congestion that does not seem to get better after ten or more days
· Yellow or green discharge from the nose
· A cough that seems to get worse in the evenings
· Swelling around the eyes and nose
· Pain in or around the nose, forehead, or in the jaw area
·  A low grade fever that is persistent
 
If you suspect your child has sinusitis, you should see the doctor as soon as possible.  A round of antibiotics will be prescribed to fight off the infection. In some cases, a second round of antibiotics will be needed.
