Hi Dear,

welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of headache and nasal congestion caused by throat tickle which is because of infection travel down the respiratory tract and affected whole area and leads to granular pharyngitis and sinusitis. Need not to worry. Take decongestant nasal sprays containing mucinex for instant relief. I would suggest you to again consult your ENT specialist for proper examination . Doctor may perform laryngoscopy or biopsy to confirm diagnosis . He/she may prescribe further antibiotic course and stronger antibiotics. You should put xylomist nasal drops to prevent congestion. You should take chicken soup along with along with lemon tea. Take diet rich in vitamin C. Take combination of Sinarest along with Levocetirizine.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
