In brief: Yes

Many questions first.
Are you a smoker? Do you irrigate your sinuses with a saline/bicarb rinse daily? Once you have had sinus infections they may alter the lining of the sinuses which normally clear secretions. You may also have obstruction of the outlets to the nose from the sinuses. You may have bad dental problems. Strongly suggest you see an ENT doctor.
