What causes sinus infections?

hello I have had sinus pain for quiet some time and it has never fully gone away. The pain has been quiet persistent and does not get fully treated with antibiotics. Also, sinus problems started suddenly 3 years ago with no underling reason other than i had rhinoplasty a year before. Could there be underlying issues? I have had allergy tests done and they came out negative.

From history it seems that you might be having chronic sinusitis.
There might be having some collection of some exudation or possibility of having polyp in sinus cavity.
Go for Para Nasal Sinuses x-ray.
After report line of treatment can be planned out.
Go for regular vicks vapor inhalation.
Ok and take care.
