Hi Sharma,

You seem to be suffering from a chronic problem; it can be chronic rhinitis, sinusitis or allergic response too.

You should do daily steam inhalation for some time. Stay away from dust and other allergens.

Also FESS surgery may help you if the cause is sinusitis. Discuss about this with your doctor.

Do not take much of antibiotics.
