I have a few questions for you. Do you smoke?
Have any allergies? Have you been told that you snore? Do you take any medication?
The answers to my questions will help me assist you.
Thank you for your response. You may have seasonal allergies. As a test, try Claritin daily for 10 days and gargle with salt water 3-4 times daily. If you see a major difference, then you have the answer. If not, a visit to an ENT doctor is suggested.

Did you try Claritin or another antihistamine and if so, did it help.
I hope you are feeling better. Please provide a rating for my response, hopefully 5 stars.
That's great. Continue to use the nasal spray, most likely Fluticasone. It will take 10 days to two weeks to get the most benefit from it.
That's excellent. Olopatadine (Rhinocort) is very similar to Fluticasone (Nasacort).
