Medication Attention For Children Sinusitis Infection

Medication Attention For Children Sinusitis Infection 5.00/5 (100.00%) 6 votes

Half of the time, sinusitis resolves on its own. This is why most doctors will not treat sinusitis with antibiotics until the symptoms are increasing (profuse cough, green runny nose, or bad head­ache) or have persisted for two to three weeks.

Furthermore, the course of antibiotics is long. To treat sinusitis completely, antibi­otics must be given for 10 to 14 days, sometimes longer.

A broad range of antibiotics can be used for sinus infections. Penicillins, cephalosporins, and macrolides (such as erythromy­cin) are among the most commonly used antibiotics.

Toddlers put all sorts of things up their noses. Even if your child does not seem bothered, these objects can eventually cause problems and must be removed.

Sometimes objects end up in the nose accidentally. For instance, an object can become lodged in the nose after a fall.

 

Objects can also wind up in the nose thanks to friends or sib­lings. As a result, the answer to the question “Did you put some­thing up your nose?” may be a truthful “No,” even though an object is stuck in there.
