sounds like sinusitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your query.
I think I would be able to help you.
The symptoms of the query are quite suggestive of a possible sinusitis.
In view of the cold that possibility is strong.
I suggest starting steam inhalation 4- 6 times per day.
get a X ray pns water view. If the X rag shows XXXXXXX sinusitis, antibiotics and nasal drops may them bd initiated.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible. I hope that the information helps you. Please feel free to contact us for more information. Best of luck. Dr Mittal.
