You may be suffering from a recurrent infection instead such as a chronic sinus infection which requires treatment. However as far as immunodeficiency disorders are concerned, the tests should include CBC – Immunoglobulin levels in the blood, White blood cell count, Protein electrophoresis (blood or urine), T (thymus derived) lymphocyte count. Ig, IGM and HIV test.
