What are these symptoms of dry blocked nose, bleeding from nose , dry cough and mild sour throat ?

I am 33 yrs old. My problem started 5 weeks ago, when I moved into my new apartment. Every morning I woke up with a dry blocked nose. After a week, I started to bleed from the nose because the dry mucus would scrap my inner nose. 3 weeks later, I heard about netipot and I bought one and with that I got some relief. Three days later I started with running nose, dry cough , mild sour throat , sneezing and left ear aches at times., Last night left eye got puffed up. I dont have fever or headaches. I vacuum and dust my house regulary, so I doubt its dust related. What else could be the cause and how can I treat it. Are my symptoms normal for a common cold / sinus or should I be worried? I dont want to miss a day s work to visit the hospital just to be sent back home be coz its a typical common cold symptom. Please advice.

welcome to healthcaremagic
most probably it is due to dust allergy
protect yourself from the dusts while cleaning
use mask .it may help to some extent
in acute attacks ant allergic like levocetrizin 5 mg daily may help
you may use normal saline nasal drops for nasal stuffiness
it is better to get consultation from e n t surgeon and be sure there is no other problem
