Hi,
Donot get afraid.
Sinusitis is not hereditary.It is inflammation of nasal passages usually triggered by allergens.
Even sinusitis isnot a major problem ,it can be taken care by ENT specialist.
Of course avoid the allergens and humid atmostphere.
Wish u good health.

Sinusitis is not a hereditary disease so there is no reason you should get worried about your baby.Just relax & take care of your baby.
