hello, thanks for ur query, sequence of sneezes,running nose, itching in ears, itching in roof of mouth, blackness under eyes are the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. it is best prevented by not to expose to cold, dust, not to consume ice creams, fridge water, curd. best street ment is avamys( fluticasone ) nasal spray twice daily . nasal spray peak action takes minimum 10days, evan you can start tab. Montek- lc ( montelukast+citrizine once daily at bed time) in severe case. all the best. take care.
