Sinus Infection, But a Dry Nose??

I just started suffering with sinus problems the last 2 years. I have had 2 sinus surgeries in the past 12 months. (as well as an infection, I had a large cyst in my left maxillary sinus cavity. It was removed and then grew back.) i'm still having problems. I had a ct scan 3 weeks ago and it showed infection in the entire right maxillary sinus and the left maxillary sinus was about 3/4 full of infection. I also have infection in the frontal sinuses, but not as bad. I have severe sinus pain along the cheeks, nose, and between the eyes. This often turns into a migraine. What's strange is that my nose has been dry the past month and I do not have any drainage coming out. I do feel drainage down my throat and it is sore. I have severe inflammation and when I wake up in the mornings, my face is swollen. Also, for about the past 2 months, my checks will turn bright red, swell up, and be severely hot to the touch. This comes and goes. The past week my gums on the left, top side are really sore and painful. I've been on antibiotics but they do not work. Does anyone out there have any suggestions on what to do? Or what this could be caused from? I worry about the infection spreading.
