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

You have an infection of paranasal sinuses and upper respiratory tract. If I were the physician treating you, then I would have given you a course of antibiotic like Amoxicillin-Clavulanic acid preparations like Augmentin for 5 to 7 days.

Kindly get prescription for the same by any general practitioner. A decongestant nasal drop would be better, or an antihistaminic like Levocetirizine would be supplemented.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
