Doctor :   Thank you for your question. It is possible that your prolonged cold symptoms could be due to chronic sinusitis. This ca n occur when bacteria infect the sinus cavities of the face leading to a very persistent and challenging to treat infection. Chronic sinusitis can precipitate severe headaches also, which may be the reason you are experiencing such headaches as well. We strongly recommend that you return for a complete evaluation of your infection. You may need to conduct an MRI to determine the severity of this infection by visualizing which sinuses are inflamed. You will likely be treated with stronger antibiotics, and nasal decongestant medication to assist in alleviating your symptoms. Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
