I am of the opinion that you should Have Nasal saline containing oxymetazoline or phenylephrine.. i. e. Origin as brand name. 2 drops in each nostril 3-5 times a day for a week. Take Tab Montair-LC ( monte lukas plus levocetrizine) at bed time. you will get relieved. Steam inhalation will also help.
