My son had really bad allergies----to everything,the first 18 months of his life were spent on anti-biotics for sinus infections. When he reached 2 the doctor put him on zyrtex for the summer which helped a lot.....the problem was when he was 2.5 i took him off and he kept getting sick and was back on anti-biotics,then back on allergy meds,it helped but he had no amune system,i took him off all meds,including anti-biotics and he has since built up ammunity to a lot of his allergies. he still gets a runny nose more often than normal,but no sinus infections,i only give him the occasional benedril and he is fine. My step son on the other hand had the same problem,we had his tonsils and adniods removed and his sinus' are better than before but still gets sinus infections---everyone is different i would recommend using over the counter meds only on days you need them.
