Hi..
Thanks for the query..

If you have sinus related problems then can be due to Infection in the sinuses or Sinusitis..

As you already have sinus related problem and a history of asthma then the chances of nasal polyps is high due to continuous irritation..

So first of all consult an Otorhinolaryngologist and get evaluated.

A sinus x ray and nasal Endoscopy can be done for confirmation..

By the time you can take a course of antibiotics and anti inflammatory painkillers..
Use decongestant nasal spray..
A combination of antihistamines like Levocetrizine, decongestant like Phenylephrine and steam inhalation can also help..

Hope this helps.

Regards..
