In brief: Allergy and sinus

See your doctor. You probably need to see an allergist to test you for allergies to find out what you are allergic to, if you do have allergies.

In brief: Get checked

While allergies are frequently associated with sinus issues, I have found pathogens (infections) and toxins more frequently associated with sinus issues.
Testing can identify which allergens, pathogens, or toxins are causing your sinus issues. When there is a significant sinus issue or asthma, I have been finding mold toxins present, and they can be detected with special urine testing.
