1 years old and 2 sinus infections

LonsKrys posted:
Okay, some may think I'm crazy because as I've read kids don't really get allergies until they are over 3 years old. If its not allergies then I'm at a loss as to what I am supposed to do. With the pollen count being EXTREMELY high in my area recently, my son (will be 1 year old in a week), has already had two sinus infections in less than 2 months. Maybe I'm just over reacting. My other son who is 2+ years old, has only had one in his entire 2 years. I'm just kind of concerned as to what it could be causing these infections if it isn't allergies? And what can I do to prevent them. And to answer any questions, no smoking is done in my home/around my kids nor are pets allowed near my kids. I do smoke (outside) and I do have pets (outside) but neither of them are allowed in my home or around my kids. Any suggestions?

Just thinking out loud, but even if you don't smoke in your home the smoke is still on your skin and in your clothing when you go back in the house. I would say it might have started off just as a little cold that developed into something more. Do you still aspirate him when he gets drainage? I know it is not easy (my daughter is 14 months) since they can fight you more now but I wonder if that would help everything keep from getting infected? I hope you get it figured out soon!
