Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post can be due to:
1. Sinusitis
2. Tension headache
3. Migraine
4. Cluster headache

Management involves:
1. Paracetamol (500 mg to be taken thrice a day) for symptomatic relief.
2. Antibiotics based on culture & sensitivity reports.
3. Steam inhalation
4. Antihistamines like Allegra can also be used.

So, kindly consult your General Physician & start treatment.
Investigations like complete blood count & X ray of para-nasal sinus will be helpful.

Wishing a good health.
Take care.
