Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post suggest that you might be having Allergic bronchitis.

Management includes:
1. Antihistamine preparations like Allegra can be taken for symptomatic relief.
2. Montelukast, which is used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies & asthma.
3. Maintain adequate hydration & take a healthy balance diet.
4. Also make sure that you are well protected from cold, dust & other allergens.

If symptoms still persist, kindly consult a Pulmonologist for further evaluation.
Investigations like complete blood count, X ray chest will be helpful to rule out any pathological cause for the symptoms.

Wishing you a good health.
Thanks & take care.
