Antibiotic therapy is the mainstay of medical treatment for pediatric rhinosinusitis.] Because of increasing prevalence of beta-lactam–resistant bacteria in the community, administer antibiotics only for suspected infection as based on a careful history and physical examination. Direct the therapeutic regimen against the prevalent pathogens in the community and carefully consider suspicion for highly resistant bacteria. Typically, uncomplicated cases of acute sinusitis are responsive to amoxicillin. Most patients respond to this initial regimen. For children allergic to penicillin, a second- or third-generation cephalosporin can be used (only if the allergic reaction is not a type 1 hypersensitivity reaction). In cases of serious allergic reaction, a macrolide or clindamycin can be used.

The patient had sinusitis.
YAMIK- procedure is a new method of topical treatment of sinusitis. The procedure is painless.
During the YAMIK-procedure, the physician inserts a medicinal solution into the paranasal sinuses.
Therefore, the treatment process is more effective than with systemic treatment.
YAMIK-procedure is applied in the treatment of acute and chronic sinusitis in both adults and children.
