Treatment of rhinitis in children 


The methods of treating rhinitis in children are as follows:

  • Choosing an effective antibiotic against complications and choosing by the doctor. 
  • The doctor must decide what is the most appropriate type of antibiotic needed for treatment, because taking antibiotics without medical supervision can lead to serious consequences and resistance of bacteria to treatment, and, consequently, aggravation and deterioration of the condition.
  • The course of treatment should last from 14 to 21 days or for a period not to exceed seven days after the disappearance of symptoms.
  • The use of Otosan Nasal Spray for children relieves nasal infections in children and is safe for children and does not cause any complications thanks to its natural ingredients.

 Home remedies for sinusitis

  • A child's absence from school and swimming training to rest is essential in treating nasal infections in children because rest helps strengthen the body's immune system.
  • Be sure to drink plenty of fluids and water: the abundance of fluids helps reduce the density of mucus secretions and thus facilitates its exit. 
  • It is preferable to avoid carbonated, cold and caffeinated drinks.
  • The mother prepares a bowl of hot water, then carefully places the child's head next to the steam coming from the bowl, avoiding touching the bowl itself, then puts a large towel around his head and around the bowl to ensure that the steam does not escape.
  • This method also helps in treating the sinuses, relieving pain, and facilitating the exit of secretions.
  • Use warm compresses on the sinus areas on the face (such as the nose, cheeks, and eyes).
  • Nasal washing to treat nasal obstruction and facilitate the exit of mucous secretions.
