Sorry for your sufferings.

Excess use of afrin can cause burning sensation or rebound congestion.

Saline drop can be used.

Benadryl or zyrtec antiallergy medicine can betaken.

As the pain is severe, you can take motrin to reduce the inflammation.

Check with your doctor whether ant antibiotic will be needed or not.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

I have mentioned about Otc saline drop, Benadryl or zyrtec, motrin which can be used.

Otherwise you will need an examination by doctor for prescription grade medicine.
