Hello, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
It seems you have allergic rhinitis induced by cold air. You protect yourself from cold, dry atmosphere as much as possible. Antihistamines like cetirizine & steam inhalation should provide benefit. Also consult an ENT specialist, if not much relief. The skin around nostrils may be raw & red due to dry, cold air-- apply vaseline or some good moisturizing cream.
