Brief Answer:
You are mostly having allergic rhinitis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HCM.
By your history and description, in my opinion you are mostly having allergic rhinitis.
First line of treatment for allergic rhinitis is nasal spray containing steroid.
Twice daily in both nostril is starting dose. Then we need to taper it down according to symptomatic control.
So better to consult ENT doctor and discuss all these.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health.
