The best option to treat sinus infection is consult your doctor again. As you said the medicine pris cribed by doctor can cause side-effects, here are some remedies that help you to cure this: 1. A saline wash thins mucus and helps flush it out of the nasal passages. “Saline washes have been studied and proven to be effective, and should be the first line of defense against sinusitis. 2. Try bromelain. Sold as a supplement, bromelain is a protein found in pineapple stems. 3. Take a steam. Hot water vapor can help moisten the sinuses. “Sprinkle a few drops of eucalyptus or menthol in the shower and steam up your bathroom. 4. Staying hydrated helps your body in many ways, including keeping your sinuses moist. Drink water throughout the day, and make sure to steer clear of caffeinated or alcoholic drinks, which can cause dehydration, Graham says. Although recommended fluid intake differs from person to person, an easy guideline is to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses a day. 5.Use a humidifier. A humidifier can keep the air moist, but be sure to keep it clean, especially if you have mold allergies. If the sinus pain does not improve with over-the-counter help then make sure you'll visit the doctor.

Like Luckie, I am also not a doctor. I do not get frequent headaches, and have not had a serious sinus problem for a few years.
However, I do have a way of "heading them off" when I feel something starting to bother my sinuses. I use sinus buster with good results (and I don't sell it, just a satisfied customer, NAYY). There is a newer version of the product called sinus plumber, which is supposed to work even better.
