Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a sinus infection.
It consists in the presence of the puss in the sinuses.
I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the inflammation.
I also suggest using saline nasal spray for local application at the nasal area.
Antibiotics are also needed to treat the infection.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
