If the symptoms are only for four days and didn't had such episodes earlier then its clearly acute infection of paranasal sinuses known as acute rhinosinusitis. Treatment includes antibiotics, decongestant tablets and drops and painkillers as required depending on severity of headache. Steam inhalation needs to be continued. Consult nearby ENT specialist for treatment
He needs to consult an ENT Specialist asap. Those symptoms suggest Chronic Rhinosinusitis which can be confirmed by a CT scan of his paranasal sinuses. The scan will also help your doctor in planning the line of treatment which could include Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.......
