In brief: ENT consult

Persistent sinus symptoms greater than 3 months indicates the possibility of chronic sinusitis with or without underlying allergic rhinitis.
Prolonged treatment with antibiotics, mucolytics and nasal saline may be indicated. Additionally an Otolaryngologist(ENT) may order a sinus CT scan and possibly allergy testing. End point therapy may include immunotherapy (allergy shots) or sinus surgery.
