Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

She may be suffering from allergic rhinitis or infectious rhinitis with eustachian tube block. Avoid cool drinks and freeze water avoid smoking. Use water vapor inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Avoid allergens like cool rooms, AC and itch mites , pollen and animal dander etc. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Use tablet Montelukast and Levocetirizine once a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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