Itchy nasal when asleep. Sneezing depriving of sleep. Help?

Hi Dr. Samuel. I am Michael. I have been experiencing itchy nasal especially when I am asleep during the night. Due to this I often sneezes the whole night depriving me of sleep. When I start sneezing my nose gets blocked and sometimes clear mucous runs from my nose. Could this be a case of sinus or are they parasites in my nasal? Please help. Thank you.

You could be suffering from allery or it could be even sinusitis. As you sleep, secretions accumulate in your nasal cavity and irritate the nasal mucosa which causes you to sneeze. Take a monteleukast tablet, a loratadine tablet and flixonase or duonase nasal spray-one squirt each nostril twice a day. This should help.
