- Oral antibiotics for 10 days. Amoxycillin is usually used
- Paracetamol for pain and discomfort
- Steam inhalation by breathing in warm, moist air in a warm shower or over a bowl of hot water. Do not use boiling water or steam as the child may be burned.
- Nasal decongestant drops or spray
If the sinusitis does not disappear in 10 days or becomes recurrent, refer the patient to an ENT specialist/clinic. Repeated sinusitis suggests an allergy. Chronic sinusitis is not common in children.
