My son who is 3 1/2 years old has had recurring ear and sinus infections since he was 1 year old. Last Sunday his temp spiked to 103 degrees. I called the doc and he said as long as he was acting ok he could wait to be on the following Monday. Monday we went in and his temp has fallen to 99.5, no symptoms other than a stuffy nose and green stuff being flushed from his nose. Wednesday rolls around and his fever goes up to 100.5. The doc thinks its just a bug and says if the fever doesnt go away by Thursday bring him back and we would start antibiotics for the "possible" sinus infection. Thurs the temp drops back down to 99.3 so I think he is ok, Friday he was ok, just a bit winey. Today is Sat and his fever is back up to 100.5, the doc called in some antibiotics for sinus infection, so we will see what happens. We have been on antibiotics 3 times in 2 1/2 months for recurring sinus infections. Our next step is to go back to the ENT for a follow up. He had his Adenoids removed last August and obviously this didnt help and it was a very hard surgery. The ENT mentioned sinus surgery, but I am very scared about that. Has anyone else had these problems with sinus infections?
