It seems from the history that your son is having cold fever headache... and he is diagnosed with sinusitis.
He is on treatment with amoxycillin and the infection should decrease by 5-7 days. If the infection persists then antibiotic needs to be changed according to sensitivity.
Hence I advice you to wait till 7 days before you ask for change of antibiotic.

Thank you
