Drink plenty of fluids, such as water or juice. This will help dilute mucous secretions and promote drainage. Avoid beverages that contain caffeine or alcohol, as they can be dehydrating. Drinking alcohol can also worsen the swelling of the lining of the sinuses and nose....Rinse out your nasal passages....take a hot shower, breathing in the warm, moist air. This will help ease pain and help mucus drain...Consult nearest physician for further help.

Hi there...it looks like you could be suffering from allergic rhinitis. Causes for it could be smoking, Amy dust allergens, bed dust, pollens. The cause for it should be identified and avoided. Sometimes even deviated nasal septum also can cause such symptoms. So kindly consult a Ent specialist for further evaluation. Try taking steam inhalation regularly. Avoid using too much nasal sprays or drops.
