Thanks for your query.

The symptom you mentioned appear to be due to sinusitis.

I would like to know some more details on you problem to advice you specifically.

Is there pain in the affected areas of the face ?
Does it hurt on touch ?
Is there any tingling sensation in the skin over the affected parts ?
Did you suffer from cold in recent past ?
Have you been on any medication recently ?

Thanks for the information.

The condition appears to be sinusitis based on the information provided.

I suggest you to apply NASIVION decongestant nasal drops about 4 to 6 drops in each nostril twice daily.This reduces the mucous in the nasal cavity and relieves your from the symptoms.

Tab Benadryl taken once in the night for three days will reduce the allergic inflammation and reduce the redness.Taking suitable antibiotics will remove the infective foci and cure you completely.

Hope I answered your query.

Please to ask if any doubts.
