See allergist: If you have trouble breathing (aside from nasal congestion) , you are suffering from allergic rhinitis and asthma. Although they can often be controlled by medications, it is better to treat the cause by consulting an allergist. In the meanwhile you may try nasal steroid to reduce the nasal congestion.
