Given the symptoms you provided, you might be experiencing chronic rhinitis. Chronic rhinitis can be caused by infection or an allergy. In case of infective chronic rhinitis, a nose and throat swab with antibiogram might determine the exact germ and its in-vitro sensitivity to antibiotics. If an allergy causes the chronic rhinitis, than nasal corticosteroid drugs with nasal decongestants might be helpful. Determining and avoiding the exact allergen with adequate tests would completely solve the problem.
