Cardiologist 's  Response
The circumstances point to the fact that the allergy is newly acquired.
Avoid carpets and pets...
Try OverThe-Counter antihistamine
If you continue to suffer - it is better to see an allergy specialist - they can investigate the ause and severity and plan appropriate approach
Good luck

General & Family Physician Dr. Kulbir Singh's  Response
Hello and thanks for the query
Your problem is most likely to be related to dust unless you have a previous history of cough and cold in changing climate. To get rid from it do steam inhalation 3-4 times per time and try to expel out phlegm as much as you can. In addition to this take expectorant cough syrup, anti-allergic drugs and protect yourself form dust and other pollen's. If you have fever or yellow phlegm than you need a course of antibiotic. Consult your physician and get treated immediately.
Best Wishes
