You must see ENT specialist and get done a CT scan of nose and paranasal sinuses ,so that if there is any disease in the sinuses can be ruled out.
Mostly for the type of headache you have, it is the frontal sinus which could be involved.
if you find to have disease in sinuses then take medical management and after that if require surgery can be done ,this decision depends on the CT scan report.
till then you can take---

Tab. Roxithromycin twice daily
