Brief Answer:
Take levocetrizine or fexofenadine and intranasal spray.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of viral rhinitis is more likely.
So do steam inhalation and warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep yourself hydrated.
Take levocetrizine or fexofenadine twice daily. Dose of levocetrizine is 5mg twice daily.
Dose of fexofenadine is 120mg twice daily.
Along with this, also take intranasal spray containing (azelastin and fluticasone).
These will relieve your symptoms.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
