Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided it seems that your son might be having sinusitis.

He might be helped by OTC medications like benadryl, Sudafed and Mucinex-DM which might help to reduce your symptoms to a great extent.

In case the symptoms worsen, then you might need to consult a doctor for prescription of antibiotics for a few days.

I hope this helps.
