In brief: Nasal wash

Try a nasal wash product.
It is a bottle that you fill with purified water and a salt/baking soda packet. You then stand over the sink, place the bottle in your nose, and gently spray the bottle. It will clear out bacteria , mucus, and debris from the nasal and lower sinuses. Have you been tested for allergies? Sometimes allergies can mask as chronic sinusitis. Be well.

In brief: Halitosis

First of all, you should meet with an md, allergist and/or an ENT to determine the cause of your chronic sinusitis.
Sinus infections can be "stubborn", and either bacterial, viral or fungal in origin, which renders them difficult to treat. The "bad breath" is caused by the post-nasal drip that lingers in the back of your throat and the crevices of the posterior part of your tongue.
