Homeopath Dr. Swati Ramkumar's  Response

The recurrent cold and headaches could be due to the sinusitis. The Deviated nasal septum increases the recurrence of getting upper respiratory tract infections, leading to the affection of the sinuses as well. Allopathic medicines would surely help you symptomatically, by that I mean, it will take care of the present symptoms you suffer from, making you feel better temporarily. But what needs to be tackled is the recurrence of the complaints, in which Homeopathy can help you greatly by not only treating the symptoms but also reducing the recurrence. Homeopathy is safe, gentle and without side effects.
As regards the blackish discoloration on the cheeks and around the lips, it needs to be examined and the cause identified.

Kindly visit a homeopath for a detailed case history and treatment, which would surely help you out!!!

In the meanwhile-
1) You may take steam inhalation (this reduces the congestion of the sinuses)
2) Breathing exercises help
3) Avoid rubbing or using any kind of cosmetics or medicinal creams on the discoloration, moisturizer is fine.
