In brief: Antibiotics

Flonase will not treat a sinus infection.
See your MD or an ENT doc for treatment.

In brief: Need help

An upper respiratory infection or head cold will typically run its course in 5-7 days.
If you are developing increased facial pain, pressure associated with nasal congestion and discolored nasal drainage, then it likely is becoming a bacterial infection. You can try decongestants, Guaifenesin in addition to Flonase , but soon you may need an antibiotic. See your doctor.
