Dear Nicoline

You would require a full ENT examination with emphasis on the nasal cavity and post nasal space. One would need to exclude chronic sinusitis, allergies, especially food allergies, and external causes for this irritation such as air conditioning, environmental factors.

Food allergies seems very likely and should be investigated further.
