Brief Answer:
Allergic rhinitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi

All your symptoms are suggestive of allergic rhinitis. You should get a x-ray paranasal sinuses done and send me the pictures.
Allergic rhinitis is usually associated with nasal pathology like a deviation in nasal septum or mucosal hypertrophy.
You should start taking tablet levocetrizine plus phenylepherine twice daily and use fluticasone nasal spray twice daily.
All the medicines I have prescribed will be available at prescription only.
Take all medicines for a week.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards
