Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Judging from the information you convey, it is likely that your complaint arises due to sinusitis. Sinusitis occurs when the air cavities that lie behind the sides of your forehead, cheeks, and nasal cavity become inflamed. The cause is often related to infection, especially the virus that causes the common cold. This condition is more prone to occur in people with allergic rhinitis, people with deviated nasal septum, tumors in the nasal cavity (for example polyps), or people with immune system disorders (for example, people with HIV and cystic fibrosis).
Sinusitis, typically, will cause the sufferer to experience a stuffy nose accompanied by mucus that is white, yellow, greenish and smells bad. These complaints will generally appear accompanied by fever, headache, pain in the face (especially around the forehead, eyes and cheeks), cough, weakness, muscle and joint pain, and so on. Lack of oxygen to the brain that results from obstruction of part of the respiratory tract can also make it easier for you to fall asleep. Not infrequently, sufferers of sinusitis will also experience problems of smell, taste disorders, easy nosebleeds, and various other complaints.
Not only sinusitis, your complaints can also arise due to other causes, for example rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity), tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils), nasal polyps, nasal cancer, other viral or bacterial infections, and so on.
We suggest, considering your condition has been going on for more than 3 days, you should not let it drag on. Get your condition checked directly to a doctor or ENT specialist. If it is true that the doctor suspects sinusitis, the doctor may also do an X-ray, blood test, CT scan, or some other supporting tests so that he can give you the best treatment.
In the meantime, all you need to do is:
Get enough sleep for 6 to 8 hours a day
Take paracetamol to improve fever, headache and facial pain
Use a nose mask
Wash your hands frequently
Increase consumption of foods with high vitamin C content
Don't smoke and also avoid the smoke
Avoid other air pollutants
Drink lots of warm water
Cut down on cold and greasy foods
Hope it helps ..
