thanks for your query.
Post nasal drip is very important sign for chronic rhinosinusitis, and also you had h/o allergy too, in favors of chronic Rhinosinusitis.
Continue nasal spray, Also add anti histaminics anti allergen Like fexofenadin +montelukast combination.
Take steam inhalation before sleeping
Avoid allergens Like dust, fumes, pollution, smoke etc
Thanks, take care.
