Brief Answer: Acute sinusitis Detailed Answer: Hi Sir, I have gone through your query and medical history; it suggests that you may be suffering from the acute sinusitis. For your kind information---> 1. Acute sinusitis can cause a drip down the back of your throat (tickly cough) which irritates your upper airways, especially when you lie down. 2. For Clear cut diagnosis you may go for the Anterior rhinoscopy, Posterior rhinoscopy, Nasal endoscopy and CT scan Paranasal Sinus. 3.Treatments for sinusitis vary depending on how long you've had it, how severe your symptoms are and whether you have polyps in your sinuses. Allergies like hay fever and rhinitis can be treated with nasal sprays, antihistamine tablets and lifestyle modifications. If you have any doubt, I will be available for your query. Wish you good health

Brief Answer: Nothing to worry Detailed Answer: Hi Sir, I have gone through your follow up query. I do not find any reasons to be worried. If the cough is troubling you, I would suggest you to try steam inhalation. If it is still bothering you, you may use benadryl syrup for few days. With or without treating, you should soon start to feel better. Wish you good health
