Health Tip: When Sinusitis Affects Children
Sinusitis occurs when the air-filled cavities inside the skull become inflamed.
The University of Maryland Medical Center says these factors increase your child's risk of developing sinusitis

Being in daycare.
Having a condition that affects the cilia (small hairs in the sinuses).
Undergoing altitude changes, such as those that occur during air travel or scuba diving.
Having enlarged adenoids, or rarely, an infected tooth.
Having a immune system that's compromised by chemotherapy, HIV infection or other conditions.
Having cystic fibrosis, an inherited disease that results in thick, sticky mucus in the lungs and digestive tract.
Health Tip: Treating a Sinus Headache
A sinus headache usually is caused when the air-filled cavities around your nose, eyes and cheeks become congested and inflamed. Doctors call this condition sinusitis.
The University of Maryland Medical Association suggests how you can help ease sinus pain
Use a humidifier or saline nasal spray, as recommended by your doctor, to help ease sinus congestion.
Ask your doctor how to keep allergies and asthma under control.
Gently stretch the head and neck.
Take prescription or over-the-counter medications as appropriate for your condition, such as antibiotics for bacterial infections, corticosteroids, antihistamines or decongestants.
