In brief: Probably okay

This is probably not a concern.
Viruses that cause upper respiratory infections are common. Here's some things to do to try and prevent getting infected. Wash hands frequently and keep them away from your face. Avoid areas where people are coughing and sneezing. Check with your doctor to get some basic lab test done.

I would suggest an allergic medical evaluation and testing

In brief: Need Basic Eval...

This may be absolutely nothing to worry about & just how your body reacts.
You should try to take basic steps like washings hands & avoiding sick people. But, this could also be a variant of asthma or allergies. It could also be a sign if something called IgA deficiency which is a first line of preventing infection. Need more information & basic evaluation. May benefit by seeing immunologist.
