Brief Answer:
You can take decongestant

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case.

When patient with such symptoms come to my clinic I usually give them tab levocetrizine, with tab Paracetemol 500 mg. Tb levocetirizine does not cause drowsiness and is also effective in handling the symptoms of allergies and cold. It can be taken one tablet before sleeping.

For allergic condition you need to focus on preventing exposure to allergen.
Along with medication take steam inhalation and betadine gargle

I will advise if possible do blood allergy test.
