Thanks for posting your query.
Itching in the nose with frequent sneezing is seen most commonly due to dry nasal membranes. This is common in dry climates, or during the winter months when the air is dry and warm from household heaters.
Other causes may include allergic rhinitis, upper respiratory infections, alcohol abuse, etc.
I suggest you to get an appointment from your ENT surgeon for proper diagnosis and further treatment.
Till then put nasal saline drops to keep the nasal mucosa moist. You can also lubricate your nose with A & D ointment, Mentholatum, Polysporin/Neosporin ointment, or Vaseline.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
