Nasal steroid: Nasal steroid is far more effective than antihistamine in relieving nasal symptoms but it does take a few days for it to give you optimal benefits. Nasal antihistamine , which requires a Rx, works much faster. If you don't get enough relief from both of the above, an allergy consult would be a good option.
