Detailed Answer:
Thanks for giving detailed history,
I will help you in best possible way,

What history you have given it suggest its most propably sinusitis,

To my patients having same complaints,
I prescribe anti-histaminics like levo citrizine,
Pain killers,
And decongestants,
Many tablets have combination of all three.

And antibiotics like azithromycin,
Your treating doctor will knowing dose of this medications,

Most important thing along with drugs is steam inhalation atleast 2-3 times a day is must,
It gives substantial relief,
