Whenever I sleep UNDER a fan or NEAR an AC, my nose gets stuffy the next morning. And I sneeze all day. Does this needs treatment? Also I am allergic to dust.

Sir, Avoid cold environment.
You should avoid dust to extent possible if you think you are allergic. Room should be dust free of dust by using vacuum cleaner. Cleaning of fan and other gadgets or switch covers for dust. Change of oily pillow covers bed sheets, looking out for cockroaches, etc to be done. Have a check up from ENT Specialist for allergy and some defect inside the nose as cause of allergy.
Household dust is a mixture of many materials. Dust may contain tiny fibers shed from different fabrics as well as tiny particles of food, plant and insect parts, mold and fungus spores, dander from pet dogs or cats, or feathers from birds. Dust also contains many microscopic mites and their waste products. The waste products of dust mites — not the mites themselves — are what cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Throughout its short life span, a single dust mite may produce as much as 200 times its body weight in waste products. Dust mite waste contains a protein that is an allergen. An allergen is a substance that provokes an allergic reaction. Homoeopathy can cure such allergy.
