Brief Answer:
Antihistamine and decongestant will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would like to advise that you should take an antihistamine like Fexofenadine 120 mg once a day along with decongestant like phenylephrine for relief.
Oxymetazoline nasal drops are also beneficial.
You should also take steam inhalation as this will clear the nasal passage.

I would advise that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated.
Bronchodilator may be needed if there is broncho constriction.

Avoid cold and dusty environment.
I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
Regards. Thanks.
