Hello,

Your symptoms are suggestive of a sinus infection.

For this reason, I recommend consulting with your attending physician for a physical exam, a sinus X ray study, a chest X ray study coupled with inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR).
Antibiotics may be needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka
