Say Goodbye to Sinusitis Symptoms with this NEW Syrup for Kids 2+

As parents, we hate seeing the distress caused by dreaded sinusitis symptoms including nasal congestion, runny or blocked noses, mucous buildup, facial pain or pressure, and sinus headaches. The sneezing, stuffy noses, and difficulties in breathing can leave them feeling restless and cranky. Thankfully, there are gentle remedies to bring relief to their delicate nasal passages, even as young as 2 years of age.

With cold and flu season in full swing, it’s no surprise that your child (especially toddlers and preschoolers) may bring home a few germs, often from the common cold virus. Unfortunately, this often leads to sinusitis which is why understanding what to look out for in sinusitis symptoms can help get you on the front foot.

While these conditions are common in children, they can make our little angels feel absolutely miserable. Let’s dive into understanding sinusitis, and discover the best ways to treat sinusitis and bring comfort to our little heroes.

Sinusitis symptoms – what to look out for.

One of the first signs is nasal congestion. It normally starts the same – a slight throat tickle, a little cough, and a blocked nose that quickly turns into pain, pressure, and congestion, leaving your little one feeling miserable.

In addition to the pressure, there’s also the build-up of mucus, making it trickier to breathe, eat, suck (for babies) and especially sleep. Sinusitis is typically caused by the common cold virus, but there are a few key differences between them.

What is Nasal Congestion?

Nasal congestion, also referred to as ‘rhinitis,’ is the inflammation of the linings of the nasal cavity.  The congestion is due to the swelling of the tissues that line the nasal passages. The blood vessels then become dilated to get the immune response cells to the nose to fight something foreign that has entered the body.

As these passages become inflamed and swollen, they constrict air flow, making it more difficult to breathe through your nose. The swelling also makes it difficult to get mucus out of your nose, so you end up getting mucus build-up.

Nasal congestion is normally caused by the common cold or flu virus but it can sometimes be caused by allergies (dust, pollen and pet dander).

What is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis is an infection or inflammation of the sinuses. The sinuses are the cavities, or spaces, within the bones of the face. Common symptoms of sinusitis include nasal congestion, runny nose, stuffy/blocked nose, facial pain/tenderness or swelling, sinus headache and mucous buildup,

These air-filled spaces are in the cheeks, forehead, and around the eyes and are all connected to the nose and throat by narrow passages. When an infection happens, the cells produce excess mucus to remove it causing blockage and pressure in the sinuses.

If you’ve ever experienced sinus pain, you know this pain all too well. It feels like someone is putting pressure all around your nose,  cheeks and behind the eyes, causing an ache that extends around most of your face.

For anyone, children, adults, and toddlers, this can make them feel miserable.

This infection is also normally caused by the common cold and flu virus. However, it can also be caused by a bacterial infection which is typically the result of a complication from a viral infection.

Bacterial sinusitis may require antibiotics. Nasal congestion and viral sinusitis will not respond to antibiotics. 

So what can you use for treatment instead?  What is suitable for younger children experiencing sinusitis symptoms?

This addresses one of the biggest concerns that parents have with sinus medication. Not many medications on the market are suitable for toddlers and younger children – the ones who most commonly bring these sicknesses home with them from daycare and the playgrounds.

We’ve all stood at the counter at the chemist looking at the various medications and wondering what will help our little ones. Well, now you don’t have to. Sinupret® Syrup is all you need.

Sinupret® has been a number #1 medication for sinusitis for families in multiple German-speaking European countries** for a while now but it only recently arrived in Australia, much to the relief of many families looking for sinus relief!

The unique herbal formula consists of 5 herbs – Gentian root, Vervain, Primrose flowers, Common Sorrel and Elderflower. These herbs work to reduce inflammation of the mucous membrane and stimulate mucociliary clearance.

Simply put, Sinupret® Syrup can reduce your child’s discomfort, loosen mucus, open the nose and clear their head. It also comes with a pleasant cherry taste so you don’t have to pull out the bribes just to convince your child to taste it.

Sinupret’s formula is plant-based and lactose-free with no added colouring.

In addition to Sinupret® Syrup, Sinupret® Forte 20 coated tablets are another excellent choice for older kids (aged 12+) and adults who are experiencing sinusitis symptoms.
