Brief Answer:
Ideally you require antibiotics.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome and thanks for your query.
You are likely to have a sinusitis, an infection of the sinuses. If you are unable to see a doctor, try steam inhalation with menthol drops, drink plenty of warm fluids and use nasal decongestant which is OTC, your pharmacist will help you choose one.
Ideally you would require an antibiotic for a quick recovery. It is a prescription medicine and you require to see a doctor if you are not better with what I have suggested.
Hope you will get well soon.
