Hello dear
Thanks for your query at HCM

Swelling of glands and sinus problem indicate that it might be because of allergy .
Zyrtec contains cetrizine that will reduce allergic symptoms.
My recommendation would be
1) avoid dust
2) avoid pollution
3) avoid cold things like ice creams and beverages
4) do salt water gargling thrice daily
Consult ENT specialist for further investigation and management if symptoms are not decreasing above mentioned things.
