General & Family Physician 's  Response
the symptoms described show clearly that there is an atopic milieu (meaning, hypersensitivity of ALLERGY).
Eyes discharge and itching constitutes allergic rhinoconjonctivities. Respiratory symptoms also fall into this allergic table. It would be important to know whether there is any family history of allergy of asthma.
Doing a serum Immunoglobulin E and complete blood counts to search for increased eosonophils could be important. getting a chest X ray and peak flow to access the asthma state. Treatment ranges from local anti histamines and steroids. Systemic steroids and anthistamines could also be used and the treatment could go for a year or two depending on the response. Other conditions that need being excluded are aspergillosis.
Consulting a pneumologist for a proper evaluation and treatment could e very important.
thanks and best regards,

you are suffering from various allergies

You should be taking antihistaminics like cetrizine etc during these episodes

to prevent these episodes of allergic rhinitis you may require steroid nasal sprays
so visit a doctor and get examined for the needful
