The most wonderful time of the year can certainly turn you into the Grinch if you’re feeling all stuffed up thanks to nasal congestion. Our team at AFC Urgent Care Cleveland doesn’t want nasal congestion to ruin your holiday spirit, which is why we are offering tips on how to find relief from your stuffy nose as soon as possible!

What Is Nasal Congestion?

When the nasal cavities are swollen, congestion occurs. While nasal congestion can occur in both sides of the sinus cavities, it can also occur only on one side or the other.

Symptoms of Nasal Congestion

  • Mucus buildup
  • Runny nose
  • Sinus pain
  • Stuffy nose
  • Swollen nasal tissue

What Is Causing My Nasal Congestion?

There could be a number of causes behind your nasal congestion. While sinus infections tend to be the culprit most often, other potential causes include allergies, hay fever, nasal polyps, chemical exposures, environmental irritants or a deviated septum. A doctor can identify the underlying cause of your congestion and offer a plan to effectively treat it.

Treatment of Nasal Congestion

  • Antibiotics
  • Antihistamines
  • Decongestants
  • Humidifiers
  • Nasal steroid
  • Saline spray
