The pain here is so painful have tried steam paracetamol and nasal spray still hurting so nsf
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 days ago.

Sounds like a viral sinus infection and that doesn't need antibiotics and usually runs its course in ten days

In addition to what you're using I suggest Mucinex, zinc lozenges, Chamomile tea and oral probiotics
