Chronic Sinusitis: You need to be evaluated by and otolaryngologist/head & neck surgeon, preferably someone with a subspecialty interest in sinus disease.

Need a doctor visit: You would need to see either an allergist or ENT to be evaluated if you have chronic sinusitis and associated conditions. Enlarged cervical lymph nodes might relate to sinusisits. If it persist after sinus diseases are treated, a visit with a hematologist/oncologist might be needed. There are no effective otc regimen for those conditions.
