You are suffering from allergy which can present in many forms and in your case it is in the form of Allergic Rhinitis. First of all you should avoid dusty, smoky atmosphere and strong smells as much as you can. Take antihistaminics like cetrizine or allegra or loratadine. Also take montair 10 mgm once a day, fluticasone nasal spray 1 squirt per nostril twice a day. Avoid junk food and foods and drinks with strong flavours and artificial colouring agents and preservatives. Go out in the fresh early morning air and do some deep breathing exercises.

please get an allergy test and spirometry done. lookslike allergic rhinitis progressing to allergic bronchitis. You need to rule out asthma.

Dear Lakshmi,
Allergies are quite stubborn and difficult to treat situations, I believe prevention is the best method to keep your symptoms at bay. I suggest you to follow these few simples steps;
- Take luke warm water 100 ml add common salt and soda about 1/4 tsp of each use this solution to clean your nostrils atleast 2 times daily. you may even use a 5 ml syringe that can be pointed straight up and flush both sides in sitting position.
- Take fistful (approx 10-12 black tulsi leaves) boil in 50ml water for 2 minutes filter and drink once daily early morning on empty stomach- to relieve congestion you may add black pepper, pippali and honey.
- Drink 1/2 tsp of haldi(turmeric) is warm milk or water twice daily.
- You may also take ayurvedic anti-allergic and immunity boosting supplements I prefer classically prepared chyawanprash.

Hope this helps you.
