Blocked nose

Rather than waste a doctor appointment with a minor ailment can any give advice concerning my intermittent total blocked nose followed by sneezing and rhinitis
I've tried all decongestant spays including a steroid one from the doctor, vicks and even fishermen friends 😂😂. Anti histamines help slightly with the rhinitis, I feel awful complaining as my friend is undergoing cancer treatment but it is affecting my life as I have to wear a facemask in work which is constantly damp, I have no sense of smell or taste and a permanent low grade headache from my blocked sinuses. Steaming brings about temporary relief and going out in the cold makes the whole issue much worse.... can anyone help???

Thanks dementedpixie think I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself as I was bought lots of nice gin/chocolates for Christmas and I couldn't taste any of them.... think I need to put on my big girl pants and persevere with the sprays and antihistamines any suggestions for the best combinations???
