Hi saadya1

you have got symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection and if you have history of allergy to dust and pollen and symptoms are recurring then you are suffering from allergic rhinitis.

If it is the case take antibiotics (amoxycillin clavulanic acid 625 tid plus azithromycin 500 OD). along with nasal spray of azelastine and fluticasone. you may need antihistaminic like cetrizine 10 mg od .

good luck
