Yes, for reassurance: The chance that you have a sinus infection is increased if you have 10 days or more of yellow discharge from your nose, nasal congestion, and facial pressure. Your doctor may then want to give you antibiotics. For your kids, if you're worried at all that they are having trouble breathing, then see your doctor to get a professional opinion. It sounds like a tough time in your house; much sympathy! ...Read more

The past 3 times i've been sick with a cold/flu i also had pink eye. Sometimes it's both eyes or other times just one. Will this keep happening?
Maybe: Reddish discoloration of the eyes is common in upper respiratory infections, and may not always be associated with a viral conjunctivitis (commonly called "pink eye"). The mucous membrane lining the sinuses is connected to the conjunctiva via a small canal (the nasolacrimal duct). Thus any inflammation in the sinuses can carry over into the eye as well, and it can be very asymmetric. ...Read more
