thanks for your query
I think its allergic rhinopharyngitis.
Continue your medication and better to stop taking mouth spray to avoid reflux coughing.
Also add betnesol gargles, it minimises the local allergic inflammation.
Avoid allergens Like dust, fumes, pollens, animal danders etc
Avoid smoking and alcohol.
Many thanks
