Suggest treatment for runny nose and nose congestion

I have been suffering from a runny nose that aternates with a congested one ! I have used claritin , telefast, clairinaize and a nasal spray yet nothing helped , in the morning and before i sleep is when it gets really bad with congestion and i can t sleep unless i use a nasal spray and in the mroning again iam so congested that i have to use a asal spray , i read that ishouldn t be using one for more than three days and that is why i am so concenred , what can i do , when i use the nasal spray i sneeze for like an hour and suffer from a runny nose that lasts for amost 3 hours !! age 40 , weight 130 pounds , height 6.4, this is not a recurrent complaint , i might have had this like once some three yrs ago. thanks

Allergist and Immunologist 's  Response

I think you should perform Skin prick test to inhalant allergens, you might be allergic to any inhalant allergen, most probably house dust mites referring to the time that you have the symptoms. You should try nasal corticosteroids together with an antihistamine.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
