In brief: Sinusitis

Upper respiratory infections, including sinusitis, may produce large amounts of inflammatory secretions resulting in sputum production and post-nasal drip.
Try using saline rinses with a neti-pot, steroid nasal spray and a decongestant (pseudoephedrine, oxymetozaline, etc.). Check with your pharmacist for otc products. They will be happy to help. Good luck.
