Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that you may have an infection of your sinuses. This may be associated with facial pain, swelling and headaches.
It would be relieved by the use of a decongestant, antihistamine, nasal spray and possibly the use of antibiotics if necessary.
The decongestant would reduce the pressure in the sinuses and the antihistamine and nasal spray would reduce the inflammation present.

I hope this helps
