Nasal Irrigation As Effective As Amoxicillin for Children with Sinusitis
Journal of Pediatrics Study states, “Acute sinusitis is common and usually treated with antibiotics in spite of the lack of evidence for the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy and the increasing number of resistant strains. “
Sinusitis is a common condition in children. Children have an average six to eight colds per year with 0.5%-5% developing acute sinus infection. Sinusitis is a leading reason for outpatient antibiotic use. In the United States (US), sinusitis affects about 1% of children each year and accounts for more than 1.8 billion US dollar in direct health care expenditures and 20 million prescriptions for antibiotics per year.
