Not a cold: Your nasal congestion is from nasal allergies not from a cold, you need to treat your allergies. If you have an allergist nearby, consult with them for testing and treatment, you probably need a nasal spray to control your symptoms. You may be allergic to dust, it is a year round problem.

An allergist is specifically trained to find the cause of "weird allergies." as they say, "find an allergist, find relief!".

Allergies : if seasonal like grass/ ragweed, tress could try Zyrtec during the day or at night Benadryl since it makes you sleepy. Use an air purifier in the bedroom and air conditioning instead of open windows may help . Could consider allergy shots. If food/nickle -avoid allergens. f/u /w/ allergist
