Hi and welcome.

Your symptoms shows infection of sinuses and your labs are consistent with bacterial infection. You need to take antibiotics for this. I would suggest you to visit your GP for thorough examination and you can get antibiotics prescription from him as well. Salt water gargles and paracetamol would help. Take lots of warm fluids.

Let me know if you have further questions.
