Hello Sharon Preethi,

You have an allergic condition. It may be related to the shampoo, conditioner or just the temperature of the water you use.
The running nose, sneezing, itching etc would be related to that. You are more prone for an infection, usually viral, at these times and that would produce fever and headache.
Try to find out what is the precipitating cause.
You can take a simple antihistamine, non sedating, for symptomatic relief when you have these.
I am available if you have further queries.
Take Care
