Sinus swelling: Runny, stuffy, congested nose with pressure behind the eyes, and sometimes post nasal discharge are suggestive of chronic rhinitis. Appropriate evaluation by ear nose and throat specialist and or allergist will be helpful. Medicines to help symptoms and possible immunotherapy (allergy injections) , if indicated, will be helpful. Humidity changes can affect the symptoms.
