On medicines for hay fever and asthma, get severe sinus headaches. Any suggestions?

I have hayfever and asthma , on medication for both which controls most symptoms, however I have quite bad sinus headaches which the hayfever medication do nothing for. I m pretty sure these headaches are allergy related. It s a pressure, sinus headache, hurts when I look down etc, the only thing that works is painkillers but I don t want to take them, everyday, like I am at the moment. Any suggestions would be great as I am training for a marathon and these headaches are holding me back

you seem to be suffering from asthma with allergic rhibosinusitis which might be secondarily infected. You need to visit an ENT specialist and also xray paranasal sinuses needs to be done for the extent of sinusitis. You will probably require a course of antibiotics and may be topical steroid spray if associated allergic rhinitis.

These all headaches can be a result of chronic sinusitis have complete treatment for sinusitis that will completely cure your problem.
The treatment includes a combination of
1. An antibiotic such as Avelox 400 mg once daily for 05 days.
2. An oral decongestant such as Loratidine twice daily for 05 days
3. Pain killer such as Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice daily for 03 days.

There is nothing to worry about that treatment will cure your symptoms and you will be fine in a day or two
