Have runny itchy nose while waking up. Happens after cleaning house. How to avoid this?

Hi For the past few months i have been getting a runny itchy nose when i wake up in the morning once a week. This usually occurs right before i start cleaning house or using a vaccum cleaner. Symptoms usually take 24hrs to clear. Is there anything i can buy over the counter to avoid this from happening? I live in australia.

It seems that you might be having allergic rhinitis giving you this problem.
Take some anti-histamin like Cetrizine or Levo-cetrizine tablet at night before going to bed.
If require you can put some decongestant nasal drops.
Ok and take care.
