DS had a sinus infection when he was 10 months old. We took him to the ped and he got on antibiotics. He seems to be developing another sinus infection (red, goopy, itchy eyes) and I don't want to put him on abx again if I can help it. He's been on them WAY more than I'd like the past two years. He weaned a few months ago, so I don't have breastmilk to put in them. Is there anything else I can do to get rid of this besides abx?

Have you tried squirting a saline solution up his nose? When I was suffering from chronic sinus infections the ENT told me to squirt 30 cc of saline solution up my nose three times daily. I believe it was 2 teaspoons sea salt, 2 teaspoons baking soda to 2 cups warm water. Its gross and he'd hate it but it really works, it just chews away any infection.
