Hello dear...
I went through your post in which you have mentioned that you are having Allergic rhinitis.

Management includes:
1. Antihistamine preparations, corticosteroids & nasal decongestants to provide symptomatic relief during acute attacks.
2. Montelukast preparations may be used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Lung involvement in the form of asthma can be seen in the presence Hyper-responsiveness of air passages to an allergen.
To prevent these symptoms, make sure that you are well protected from cold, dust & other allergens.

Wishing you a good health.
Thanks & take care.

As correctly stated by you, your symptoms are suggestive of allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis needs to be kept under control. Allergic rhinitis indviduals are at risk of developing bronchitis or associated asthma. You need to avoid all sorts of dust exposure and promptly take medications when an episode of rhinitis develops. Also yearly flu vaccination and 5 yearly pneumococcal vaccination will help you to decrease the chances of secondary infections.
If ther are no respiratory symptoms at present then there is no need of worrying.
