How long can congestion go on

I caught a cold over a month ago, was hard to get rid of. Was feeling more and more congested every week. Cold is long over, no sneezing, etc. but I feel sinus pressure in face and nose all congested. This is month now. My GP gave me amoxycillin and steroid spray. The antibiotics didn't work and the spray after 3 weeks now has little/hardly any effect. Just partial clearing every now and then.
How long is spray work. I see pharmacist and she told me if it didn't work within 2 weeks, it's never going to work.
Can sinus problem suddenly appear from cold and so hard to go away.

thank you.

Re: How long can congestion go on

Many years ago, I had a sinus problem (the ones in my face). The ENT tried everything - meds, draining - nothing worked. I had to have surgery in the end and finally I was cured. Have you seen an ENT for your problem??

I was afraid someone would say that.
