My 6 year old was treated for 10 days with an antibiotic for sinus infection . It did improve, but did not go away completely (he has a history of this and usually needs a repeat antibiotic to clear it). He has since developed ear infection along with his unresolved sinus infection. He has been put on a different antibiotic and has been on it for 5 days. There was initial improvement in the first couple days, but he is now running a fever of 101.7 and has had blood shot eyes for a couple days. Now what do you recommend? Calling his pediatrician for advice, or just taking him back in to urgent care?
