In brief: Rhinitis
Usually if the problems you are describing are nasal symptoms that are all year long and persistent and not aggrevated clearly by spring, fall, cedar season, cats etc.
They may still have an allergic component to all year around allergies such as dust or molds that need direct testing. If the tests are negative a nasal smear can be helpful from an ENT doctor or allergist
