Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for writing to H.C.M.Forum.
You are suffering with common cold, snoring,and pains around the nose. All these collectively called sinusitis, it is secondary to the common cold may be allergic , viral, or eosinophilia related, or may be due to deviated nasal septum.
With over the counter medicines you wont get the complete relief, with out a proper diagnosis.
I advise you to consult an E.N.T . surgeon, for diagnosis and treatment . you may need to have M.R.I. besides other routine tests for confirmation. Except D.N.S. others can be treated with medicines, and D.N.S. requires operation.
Wishing you a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
