Possibility of sinusitis is more likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of sinusitis is more likely.
Sinusitis is infection of paranasal sinuses.
So consult ENT doctor and get done x ray of paranasal sinuses.
If needed MRI of paranasal sinuses should also be done to confirm sinusitis.
You may need higher antibiotics like amoxicillin clavulinic acid or levofloxacin.
Do you steam inhalation and warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
Please let me know
1. Do you have fever?
