Sinus Infection or Allergies?

Patient : I don't know if I am suffering from Allergies or an actual cold/sinus infection. I've suffered for almost an entire week with no relief from any allergy medication. My chest is congested, I have yellowish mucus when I blow my nose and dry cough that barely brings up any phlegm. I'm tired and run down but have no aches or chills. I also have some pain in my ears and watery eyes. I just want relief.
Symptoms:  Sore throat, congestion, watery eyes, ear ache, stuffy nose, yellowish mucus, dry cough
