There are a few possibilities -
The antibiotic might not have been effective - anaerobic infections often occur in sinus.
There may be an underlying cause - a polyp for example
Rarely the headache could have a different and unrelated reason!
You may need an X-ray (may be a CT scan) of the sinuses - please see an ENT specialist and have you evaluated
In the meantime, use decongestant nose drops - available over the counter
Good luck
