Brief Answer:
Steam inhalation

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Increased congestion in the nasal mucosa can increase the irritation and hence allergic sneezes. Taking steam inhalation with Eucalyptus oil in it would reduce the sensitivity over time and avoid such problems. Steam has to be taken atleast three times a day.

Also medication like Leukotriene receptor antagonist (LTRA) may have to be taken in severe cases. The best drug amongst the class is Montelukast. Discuss about the same with your treating doctor.
