Sinus infections: often take longer to go away than 5 days. Sometimes they need 2 courses of an antibiotic. Your daughter may also have a concurrent viral infection causing her cough, which certainly can last longer than 5 days. If she is not better after 7-10 days on her medication, or if she is worsening, she should be re-checked by her doctor.
