Nasal Blockage

I've been experiencing blockage in my right nostril for the past 2 months. It started with fever, coughing, and blocked nose about 2 months ago. The fever and coughing has gone, however the nasal blockage remains. I've had this problem 1 time before, but it lasted just a few days. The left nostril also gets partially blocked at times, which makes breathing very difficult.

Occasionally both the nostrils get cleared on their own, but it gets blocked again during the night. I've used Otrivin - Xylometazoline Hydrochloride Nasal Drops IP (1:1000) on many days, which completely clears the nostrils and gives me relief for the rest of the day. I'd consulted a doctor who prescribed some medicines, but they haven't done anything. The Otrivin nasal drops are the only thing that's worked until now. I don't want to use them continuously as they're said to cause further blockage.

Please suggest some cure for this problem. I'm having difficulty breathing normally.
