Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely due to the post nasal drip originating from the sinuses.

You can try an anti histamine like loratadine 10 mg orally daily available over the counter.

Flonase steroid nasal spray can be used along with as well also available over the counter.

2 weeks treatment should be adequate.

Environmental allergies are the common reason.
