This is Dr. David
if you are having runny nose and sinus congestion, you should be on an antibiotic for a possible bacterial sinus infection which is known to cause dizziness and vertigo and headaches. you should see a doctor at the urgent care or ER or your primary care doctor to get you on a course of antibitoics.
African should only be used for 2-3 days
but you can use allergy medications like Allegra, Zyrtec, Claritin daily, and also steroid nasal sprays like Nasocort (over the counter) and prescription Nasonex and Flonase to decrease inflammation in your sinuses.
you can also use Sudofed once or twice a day to help with sinus congestion.
you can use antihitamines like Benadryl at night time.
it may not be a viral sinus infection. it could be a bacterial sinus infection.
I would get on a course of antibiotics this week just to be sure you are not sick still next week.
try the over the counter treatments I mentioned as well
