Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Rajesh Lakhanpaul's  Response
yes you are having sinusitis. The thick greyish mucus needs easy expulsion . Steam with euclyptus oil or with cap. Karvol in boiling water will loosen this and make the nasal passage patent. Have hot milk with turmeric in it. This will increase your immunity against allergies and asthma and also cure sinus infection.

ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

You are definitely having acute sinusitis, antibiotics, mucolytics and decongestants are required. Hence you need to consult your ENT specialist and get treated appropriately. Till then drink plenty of warm water, use saline nasal drops 3 drops 3-4 times/day and steam inhalation 2-3 times/day, if headache/sore throat is there you can take pain killers.
