Sinusitis in children usually starts with a viral upper respiratory infection. A viral illness can result in fever, cough, and yellow or green nasal drainage. Persistent symptoms at day 7–10 or symptoms that improve and then worsen suggest probable bacterial sinusitis. A persistent day time cough in children also suggests bacterial sinusitis.
