Some important information is needed to answer you. Do you have allergies or asthma. Is this a single episode that you are affected?

Frost bite is not common as sinuses and throat has high blood supply. Pain, redness, swelling and mucus discharge are common if there is bacterial sinusitis.

Antibiotic therapy with proper draining of sinuses is the right treatment now.
