      Hi, I would recommend that you visit your doctor or perhaps an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist for medical investigations to confirm whether or not your sinuses are the real problem for the worsening signs and symptoms. Your doctor would prescribe meds and regular follow up to see if the intended response to treatment is occurring. In the meantime you should stay away from allergens. Foods like nuts and milk may cause increase mucous production that causes blockage of the sinuses but it’s not known by many persons.
