Hallo Benjamin
You may have an allergy. Try taking an antihistamine like Loratidine at night. if you also sneeze a lot and suffer with a chronic runny nose, ask your doctor to test your IGE levels - if high you may need to use a cortisone nose spray daily long term. One can use Drixine or Illiadin short term ( not longer than 5-7 days) for a blocked nose. Using it longer may cause rebound congestion.
