Sneezing everyday for last 8 months with runny nose

Patient : Hi! I am Sushmita from Bangladesh! I am suffering from chronic sneezing for the last 8 months (since june 2014) Till now I havent seeked any medical advise and have been using over-the-counter meds but no cure. I have been using deslor and provair ...drugs that are available in Bangladesh.. For the last two months I am continuing with provair (taking one tablet daily) .. Prior to that I had taken provair with deslor (both together and seperately) and continued for a week or 10 days occasionally... When sneezing worsens i take deslor. Symptoms: Initially I used sneeze in the morning with runny nose (water like fluid) then in the day time it used to get fine. Now I sneeze all over the day but its high in the morning time.. I sneeze even when I am sleeping in the bed under blanket (at 6 am)... I thought it might be dust allergy .. I kept my room, house , bed clean.. No cure... I thought its due to season.. no summer winter its all same.. Its Location... no I came to ethiopia in October 2014 then went to Bangladesh in December 2014 and now again I am in ethiopia .. its still there.. At times I feel completely fine but I sneeze every day and occasionally it worsens It just started all of a sudden in June 2014.. prior to that I was completely healthy I am not finding any food that is responsible... I understand the triggers.. like after shower, after getting out of the house and on my way to work I am tired of it.. Suggest me medication that will help

Doctor :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you. You seem to be suffering from Chronic Sinusitis and Post Nasal dri p. I would advise you to get following investigations done: 1. Xray PNS 2. Absolute Eosinophil count. I advise following treatment in such scenario: 1. To do steam inhalation 4-6 times a day. 2. To take anti-allergic like Levocetirizine 3. In cases, who don't respond to anti-allergic drugs, Fluticasone Nasal spray helps greatly. Share my opinion with your doctor before acting upon it. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy.
