Not allergies?: I'm wondering what leads you to say it isn't allergies. It sounds consistent with allergies, but could be from something you are chronically exposed to (i.e. Indoor allergies). Depending on how long it's been going on, it could be a cold or bronchitis as well. If it persists you should definitely see your doctor.
