topical nasal steroids, oral anti inflammatory, oral decongestant/anti hist

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The saline solution is a very good choice to help deal with your discomfort.

In addition to this you may want to also consider trying --(1)oral antihistamine decongestant even with no congestion, the decongestant would reduce any swelling of the turbinates of the nose which would help ease the pain

(2)oral anti inflammatory medication , this would help with pain relief and also reduce any inflammation in the nasal lining. eg naproxen, ibuprofen, cataflam etc

(3)topical steroid spray eg nasonex, nasocort, flonase

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
