Sounds like a cold: Medication for colds is not really recommended for children. As long as he is breathing well and drinking enough to stay well hydrated you may want to consider giving him a spoonful of honey for his throat and nasal saline mist for the nose multiple times a day. If he gets worse, contact his pediatrician for further advice.

ENT: It sounds like allergic symptoms with chronic sinusitis. However, it is too long to have these symptoms without treatment. See an ENT doctor.
