Brief Answer:
Recurrent nasal and throat infection.

Detailed Answer:

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

A recurrent sore throat or nasal congestion can be due to only nasal pathology or sinusitis or can be due to tonsillitis.
Sinusitis is characterised by heaviness in the sinus areas, nasal blockage, nasal discharge or blockage or headache etc.
You should get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done to diagnose sinusitis.
Also send me the picture of your throat so that I can suggest you better and prescribe you accordingly.
What medicines have you been taking so far?

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
