Drop in to my clinic for a proper ENT evaluation of your problem.. Otrivin could be the source of your problem as it should not be used for more than 5 days at a stretch.... Causes Rhinitis Medicamentosa.

allergic rhinitis needs to be treated with steroid nasal sprays as well as long acting non sedating antihistamines for long term. you should stop using otrivin nasal drops as they can cause permanent changes in nose leading to increased severity of nose problems
consult nearby ENT specialist for treatment
