Sore throat, coughing, sneezing, post nasal drip. Taking cough drops. Due to allergies?

Hello, I ve had an itchy throat with constant coughing, sometimes very harsh, and sneezing with clear exudate, and I ve been afebrile. It is very bothersome. The constant coughing and sneezing and runny nose keeps me awake at nite. I ve been eating coujgh drops like crazy just to soothe my throat. Any suggestions? Allergies? Sinusitis? Definite post nasal drip , sometimes thick, sometimes thin and watery and always clear.

Hello this is DR ARPAN ,
Your history of persistent itchy throat, sneezing, coughing and post nasal drip with clear fluid and no fever suggests the diagnosis of allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis.
I will suggest you to do gargles with lukewarm salted water early in the morning before breakfast and steam inhalation on the appearence of symptoms.
Along with this i will prescribe you tab. Monte-L (montelukast-10mg + levocitrizine-5mg) one o.d.(one tab in the morning after breakfast at least for 2 weeks.
