What is the treatment of sinusitis?

  1. Oral antibiotics for 10 days. Amoxycillin is usually used
  2. Paracetamol for pain and discomfort
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
