In brief: Allergy?

Your symptoms can be due to sinus infection but seasonal allergies can also have these symptoms.
An evaluation by your doctor would be needed to determine the etiology of your symptoms and render the correct treatment.

In brief: Allergy Medications

Your symptoms appear to be related to an allergy.
I would recommend starting with claritin, zyrtec or allegra. If you have a sinus infection, you may start with any nasal decongestant, but keep in mind the side effects of prolonged use > 6 days straight. See med box. See your doctor if symptoms persist or worsen.
