See your doctor : For assessment and possible referral to a specialist, an ENT / Allergist, it's the spring season and you may allergic to certain pollens. Meanwhile, saline nasal washes, regular administration of anti histamines, preferably the less sedating as loratadine or cetirizine, also OTC steroid nasal spray woukd help, read the labels carefully and don't exceed recommended dosage and duration, good luck

Fluticasone nasal: Various allergens in the air may make you sneeze. If there is nothing new to your environment, it could be seasonal. Long-term, fluticasone nasal spray may help relieve seasonal and year-round allergic nasal symptoms, such as itching and sneezing, as a preventative med. If you provide your allergy meds, there may be other possibilities as well to help you out short-term.
