Sinusitis often overdiagnosed in children. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently released guidelines for diagnosis of sinusitis. Symptoms are runny nose, postnasal drip, and/or a daytime cough which may become worse at night. These symptoms need to have been present for more that 10 to 14 days although sinusitis might still be present over shorter time interval if symptoms are severe and include 3-4 days of fever and child appears unwell.
