Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question

This could be a sinus infection or chronic sinus inflammation.

I recommend you ask your GP for a referral to an ear nose and throat doctor (ENT)

They may need to give special medicine to clear up the sinuses
