Treatment of sinusitis may include the following:

  • antibiotics, as determined by your child's physician (antibiotics are usually given for 10 to 14 days, and sometimes longer)
     
  • acetaminophen (for pain or discomfort)
     
  • use of a cool mist humidifier in your child's room
     
  • nasal drops

Decongestants and antihistamines may not help the symptoms of sinusitis.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
