You seem to be suffering from chronic sinusitis.When sinuses become blocked, they provide a place for bacteria, viruses, and fungus to live and grow rapidly. Although a cold is most often the culprit, anything that prevents the sinuses from draining can cause sinusitis.

For chronic sinusitis that doesn' t respond to medication, your doctor may recommend endoscopic sinus surgery.
Enlarging the sinus opening is also sometimes recommended. A newer procedure called balloon rhinoplasty involves inserting a balloon inside the sinus cavity and then inflating it. 

Consult a ENT surgeon,get the CT or MRI of sinuses done and get the required surgery done if the surgeon advises you for that.
