Hi,

You could be having sinusitis or rhinitis which could be allergic in nature. Do you have associated symptoms of cough, wheeze, breathlessness, post nasal drip etc?

You should try steam inhalation, saline nasal drops and oral antihistamine medications for your complaints and see if it helps with the symptoms.

You should see your doctor and get a clinical examination for a diagnosis and to evaluate if any investigations are required including blood tests, chest xray and CT scan of the sinuses.

Are you allergic to any specific substances or have had allergic reactions in the past? Are you on any medications currently?

Let us now about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Hi,

Nothing can be said with surety without a clinical examination and relevant investigations lie a CT scan of your sinuses.

Have you tried taking oral anti-histamine medications, saline nasal drops, steam inhalation? Has it helped with your symptoms?
