Best treatment would be to find allergens causing symptoms and to avoid it...over the counter antihistaminics will be beneficial to you...Consult nearest allergy clinic for skin prick test and other modalities of investigations in which they will test you for various allergens and find out to what you are allergic...and they treat you with diluted doses of that allergen to desensitise your body to that allergen...good luck.

If you are aware that these symptoms recur after taking cold food, you should avoid doing the same. Otherwise treatment remains the same like taking tab cetrizine or some other anti allergic medicine. In the meantime ensure that you take general measures to improve your health by maintaining good sleep hygiene, nutritious diet and exercise. May also take some calcium tablets.
If the things don't improve, it is better to consult your family physician for better understanding of the problem and treatment.
