Suggest treatment for sinus infection and pain in back of head

My husband has a chronic sinus infection. He has had this for about 8 months now. He has been given a couple rounds of antibiotics, nasal decongestant, and anti inflammatory meds. The infection is not gone, and now he is starting to have pain at the back of his head that he describes as pressure and burning. What is going on? Should i be worried?

Hi.
Read and understood your history and concerns about your husband who is having headache. He is having sinus infection over months and taken a few cources of antibiotics.

I would advise a few things in such a case for proper diagnosis and treatment.
- Go for a contrast enhanced CT scan of the sinuses, tests of blood and ENT endoscopy with opinion of an ENT surgeon.
A proper diagnosis alone can lead to an effective treatment.
Till then continue nasal drops and steam inhalation.
