Hello,

It could be sinusitis. Consult a general practitioner and start a short course of antibiotics preferably amoxiclav.

You can also do steam inhalation to open up the blocked sinuses. Generally, the symptoms will settle in five to six days. If symptoms persist better to consult an ENT specialist and get evaluated.

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

Take care

Regards,
