Hello and welcome to HCM,

I have understood that your headache is not getting relieved from simple medication and that you may be having a case of acute sinus headache or a vacuum headache.

You thus need to take an antibiotic like amoxycillin-clavulanate 625 mg twice daily along with an antihistamine like levocetrizine once daily. Your doctor will know about these.

If the pain is persisting you may also consider taking injections for faster and better pain relief.

Take steam inhalation and do not have anything cold

Wait for a week or two for the symptoms to improve
When this episode is settled or if the symptoms do not improve then you need to take a CT of the brain and the Sinuses and get back to me with the reports.

get well soon
