you symptoms does look like allergy,if your having symptoms through out the year then it may be dust allergy, for allergy you have treat your self in step wise manner
first if your symptoms is for few months a year like 2-3 months then you start an antihistamine which you have to take daily at night. if your symptoms still persist then your start using steroid nasal spray, it has no side effect and it controls the allergy very well and you should start 2 weeks before your symptoms start. if this also does not cure you.
then get yourself tested for allergy, it is called skin prick test you will know what you are allergic to, then if possible you can avoid the allergen or you can start treatment called immunotherpy. this is currently the best treatment available and your symptoms will easily reduce by 80-90 percent kindly visit your ent specialist he will guide you further and immunologist he will do skin prick test and immunotherapy

Welcome to healthcare magic. Please take a pinch of mustard seeds on empty stomach as its anti allergic as well. Have you been investigated for TB? If not pls get the mantoux test done to make sure its not the case. Alternately if you are living in India pls try Itrifil Ustukhuddus for chronic catarrh and excessive phlegm related cases.
