the last couple of months, i've had post nasal drip, where it's been dripping down to my throat. is this allergies or a sinus infection?

Either or both: A more detailed history and response to specific treatments can provide clues. A test for allergies can help but doesn't rule out a sinus infection or non allergic causes. CT scan of the sinuses is sometimes ordered but carries the risk of radiation. I hope you get some relief.
