Suggest treatment for sinus infection

I have been to the doc 3 times and on 3 different antibiotics. I m still no better. My nose and sinuses are still full of green nasty stuff and my throat and sinus cavity are so itchy it s driving me nuts. My throat has red bumps almost like an allergic reaction. I have no tonsils. Please help.

Welcome to healthcare magic.
I had gone through your question.
I can understand your concern.
This could be due to antibiotic resistance.
You might need an higher antibiotic.

I recommend the following.

1) Culture and sensitivity of the pus.
2) Steam inhalation.
3) Salt water gargling.
4) If its not responding you might need a surgical intervention to drain the all sinus collection. Consult an ENT doctor for the same.
You will be fine.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any questions, I am happy to help.
Wish you a good health and speedy recovery.
