I has been having runny nose and mucus build up, how to get rid of it ?

I m a 21 year old female that has been having a really bad runny nose. I also have been having a mucus problem. I have been coughing and sneezing a lot out. I can not breathe out my nose which now has caused a sore throat . I have not been able to sleep since i can t breathe out my nose. I also have been coughing not a lot but when I start I can stop. I have tried many different medicine but nothing has helped. I feel like its getting worst. I have never had allergy problems before. I have not had itchy or watery eyes or a fever . What can I take to help ?

Hi. You must be having an allergic reaction to something...might be dust or the weather. Please use antihistaminics after proper consultation with a doctor. Inhalation with menthol and warm water will help you. You need to understand the trigger and in the meantime please start some antihistaminics like levocetrizine, but be careful while driving as some sedation is caused by these drugs.

Homeopath Dr. Gaurav Kackar's  Response
Welcome to health care magic forum,
It looks as if you are at the developing stage of sinusitis, or you may have a nasal polyp,because you cannot through your nose, and needs investigations to get confirmed, , as you said that you have tried lot of medicines, i don't know, you have tried homeopathy or not, but homeopathy is the best way to get complete cure for your problem, as other treatment only suppress your conditions which may give you relief but not permanent, so if you are looking for a permanent cure go for Homeopathy,

start taking hot water steam daily twice a day, especially before sleeping.
avoid sour things and extra salt.
drink lot of water, if possible drink some Luke warm water also.
Homeopathic medicines increase your immune system
