Difficult to say without examination.

Various viruses can lead to lesions in the back of the mouth as well as pain.  A swab, culture, or blood tests to evaluate for various viruses can be considered.

Further imaging of the sinuses can be considered (i.e. a CT scan) to further evaluate the sinuses.  Appropriate antibiotic therapy can be considered to treat persistent sinusitis.  If the infection persist or is refractory, surgery may be necessary.

These options can be discussed with your ENT.  A referral to an oral surgeon can be considered to further evaluate the mouth lesions.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
