Cold and Sinuses

I had sinuses from the time I was in college and lived in Visakhaptnam, I had chronic issues at that time and had to take inhalers, over the years that has stopped and I haven't used any int he past 6-7 years however I have a tendency to catch cold very much and I get severe headache. I had to take antibiotics 1-2 times a year in the past but over the last 2-3 years I have nt taken any antibiotics but frequently catch a cold and get headache and have to take OTC medicines like Saridon/ Sinarest which work perfectly well. I wanted to understand can there be a way of curing the same?
