Dear friend,
You sypmtoms seem to be developing after allergy. Early morning snnezing is also a sign of chronic allergy and some simple things to do over a few weeks would help you.
Avoid dust exposure as much is possible, cover nostrils & mouth when be in a dusty situation.
Try covering you head during night and identify whether morning sneezing also happens because of temprature variation during night (sleeping directly opposite a fan, extra cool or warm room etc). If so avoid this.
For blacked nose take steam two-three tmes daily.
Start breathing excercises..deep breath..hold..and release slowly.many times daily.

When severe symptoms are there, use over the counter anti-allergic medicines with decongestants.

You can continue with Vit C.

persistent blocking may lead to a sinus infection so consult a Physician or ENT person if things dont get better.

Do well.

hello and welcome,

you are having allergic rhinitis to mainly dust.

you need to take precaution to stop yourself from exposure to dust,
try using mask , there are good quality m asks available, when you outside the house.
try maintaining dust free environment at home , use more curtains, use mess for door and windows.
get the house sweep-ed and mopped twice daily .

for the time being till you buy yourself a mask cover your nose and mouth with 2 to 4 layers of some thin muslin cotton cloth.

take some antihistaminic tablet to decrease the allergic reaction.
for blocked nose vapors of eucalyptus oil is good and very effective.
you can also take steam inhalation or sinarest vapors.

take care of your self , if the symptoms does not subsides do show a doctor the sooner possible.
thank you
