Hi , welcome to healthcare magic

It sounds like rhinitis which is inflammation of the nasal passages and characterized by sneezing, nasal congestion, nasal itching and runny nose. In some persons the eyes, ears,sinuses and throat.
Allergies are the most common cause of rhinits.
Other causes are infective such as the common cold and non allergic rhinitis. In non allergic rhinitis the symptoms may be brought on by medication, hormonal , autonomic (part of our body's nervous system) or changes in weather.

Treatment normally entails (1) determining if there is a particular agent causing the allergic response which may require allergy testing (2) use of intranasal corticosteroids (3) use of antihistamines
If these steps are not effective , it may be that you have non allergic rhinitis which may require alternative management.

You should consider going to your doctor for a full evaluation if over the counter use of the above medication is uneffective.

I hope this information is helpful to you and I hope that you feel better

Thank for posting your query,
From your description seems to be an exaggerated immune response probably to some foreign antigen. Some peoples have genetic predisposition to allergies. Make an self assessment and find out when start your problem and possible causes. Many allergens may be involved around you like : molds, animal wool, dander ( you said you have cat, so take in consideration ) , mite feces, dust, polen, nuts, etc. plus triggering factors if you can identify them. To clarify , I would advice you Laboratory investigation ( complete blood analysis, serum IgE level, skin testing to possible allergens who may be involved. As a treatment I would advice you antihistaminines tablets and eye drops, nasal drops. In some cases your Physician may prescribe inhaled nasal Mast cell stabilizers , Anti-inflammatory corticosteroids and in sever cases immunotherapy.
Remember, most important find allergic triggers ( if such existing ) remove or avoid them .
I wish you speedy recovery.

Best Regards,

Thanks for posting your query.
You may have allergic rhinitis due to cat.
You should consult with ENT surgeon and go for complete check up.
You can take azelastine nasal spray with fluticasone. This you can take twice in day. This is a wonderful medicine for such cases.
