Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue which is the lining of sinuses. Normally, sinus is filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow and cause an infection. Conditions which may cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, or a deviated septum. In children, common environmental factors that contribute to sinusitis include allergies, illness from other children at day care or school, pacifiers, bottle drinking while lying on one's back, and smoke in the environment.
