Thank you for your query.

1. Seems to be a cold and sinusitis. Sneezing, irritation of the nose and eyes leads to the possibility of an allergic or viral infection.

2. You need to get an nose and throat examination. Rule out Sinusitis with an X-ray. A throat swab may be advised by your doctor.

3. You need to discuss with your physician regarding antibiotics. Antibiotics also prevent secondary bacterial infection in viral upper respiratory tract infections. You will require additional supportive medication such as anti-allergics, mucolytics, pain-killers and anti-fever / inflammatory medication, medicated gargles, anti-reflux medication and steam inhalation. Routine blood test may be advised.

4. If nasal obstruction is causing your breathlessness, consider a CT PNS (Para Nasal Sinuses) after this acute infection subsides.

5. Balloon Sinuplasty is a new option for long term relief available now.

6. You may share your investigation reports here for more specific treatment options.

I hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries, I will be available to answer them.
