By your history you seem to be suffering from Allergic Rhinitis. But you need to get yourself examined by A ENT surgeon. And if he thinks it necessary you may need to get a Xray/CT scan done of your nose. With right treatment you can get rid of the problem.

Hi;
Welcome to HCM . You may be suffering from allergic rhinitis or deviated nasal septum. So you need to get a x- ray of your nose. For allergy you may take antihistaminics& inhaler steroid in micro puff. You should get examined by ENT specialist &consult his advise.
Wish you best of health.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
It appears you have Allergic rhinitis. Do you also get ear block and mild headache sometimes. You must use handkerchief when you walk near dust to protect yourself. You should get examined by a ENT Doctor who will give you Leukotriene antagonist drugs like Montek LC which will prevent further attacks and also maybe some nasal sprays. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables and drink enough water. Eat on time. Sleep well on time. Don't worry, your symptoms will come under control. Just visit ENT Doctor who will help you best.
