Hello,

You have to get it done X-ray of paranasal sinuses. Depending upon the sinus involvement the treatment depends. Use naso clear normal saline nasal spray for five days. you may use flonase nasal spray twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult with your ENT specialist he will do nasal endoscopy and treat you accordingly.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
