Sniffing from nose leads to headache. Is it a bacterial infection?

Hi, I have had this nose problem on and off for months every time I sniff my head hurts and I have bad headache in the right side of my head. I think I have leakage somewhere in my head but I have seen so many doctors and all of them tell me it's bacterial infection and give me an antibiotic which does not help at all. Should I be concerned?

first of don't think about leakage at all, it seems to be a case of paranasal sinusitis , get a plain X ray of your head and face region in caldwel luc view and water's view, consult an ent surgeon for further diagnosis, till then you can take some antibiotic like levofloxacin 500 mg OD for 7 days, levocetrizine OD,sinarest inhalation thrice a day, mucolytic like brmohexene and also get tonsil examined by the ent surgeon.
thankyou for consulting HCM.
