Forehead sinuses missing

I am born with my forehead sinuses missing, this was recently found out when I did an IRA scan. Whenever I talk to a doctor or specialist they have no idea how to help and how that affects me. I have been bothered all my life with constant nosebleeds, colds, sore throat, mucus and snot getting stored in large amounts in throat and nose. Right now I'm doing a university degree in psychology which is very demanding and I find it hard to gather the stamina to keep up. I am bothered with constant colds or at least the symptoms of it and want help to find a way to live with it. I am only 25 years old and I am realizing that this likely wont get better unless I do something. Please help me find a way to live with this or fight this.

It’s of no consequence to not have frontal sinuses. Probably better as there’s less to go wrong. See your ENT for a scope of the nose and a diagnosis of your nasal symptoms. Likely you’d need to use a nasal steroid spray longterm.
