Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to nasal congestion. I suggest to use a steroid nasal spray to relieve the nasal congestion. I also suggest to use decongestant such as Dexometorphan. I recommend to do a sinuses X-ray to confirm sinusitis and take proper treatment.

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

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
