It is possible that you have sinusitis.
You will do well with an antibiotic preferably of the penicillin group.
You have to see an ENT specialist to confirm and start the treatment.
You may even need a nasal endoscopy. All the internal structures of the nose become clearly visible and any hidden patholoy can be clearly seen.
Talk to your ENT about it.
Till then you can start decongestant nose drops like otrivin. They help to ventilate the sinuses thereby controlling any infections. You can instill 3 drops in each nostril 3 times a day for 6 days and follow it up with steam.
Drink lots of water and avoid air conditioning and fan.
