Sinusitis: Sinusitis or a foreign body in the nostril can cause a persistent nasal dishrag as can allergies. If the discharge is malodorous (smells) the nasal cavity needs inspected by pediatrician or ENT physician. Generally sinusitis may resolve without antibiotics, but if persists antibiotics (augmentin) may be prescribed. If a foregin body it needs removed.
