I have really bad allergies. Seriously. I am allergic to cats, dogs, hamsters. anything with fur(not hair. I'm not allergic to myself). I'm also allergic to dust and grass which means that anywhere I go I have bad sinuss. Occasionally I use afrin, which is a strong over the counter nose spray. It clears up the worst of sinuss almost instantly. It's a clear nose in a bottle. However, if you use it too frequently( like 2 times a day for 3 days in a row), you become addicted to it and need it even breathe. So use afrin when it gets really bad. but not too often ;) Good luck! I know it sucks!
a nasal saline spray like Simple Saline (is good for babies too) or a Nedi pot both irrigate your nose to clean it out, it's a little uncomfortable at first but they really help and are safe with no medications
uhh take hot shower or bath use vicks drink o.j. or tea either one a lot then blow ur nose as hard as u can as much as u can trust my brother is allergic to everything i kno it gets annoying after a while hereing the sniffleing like every 10 seconmds it sux but u just got to do tht stuff throughout the rest of this horrible clod weather...
If you don't mind taking over the counter medication, nothing works like regular, old, $2/bottle generic nasal spray. Use it sparingly. I've heard you can develop a tolerance and your nose will be stopped-up all the time, but that never happened to me, and I probably use a little too much. Next to that, the only thing I've found that works is to hold my nose, close my mouth, and blow until my ears pop to try and move things around in there a little. But that barely works. There is also a drug that is not sold over the counter that does it, but that's a little extreme.
The restaurant Osaka has the best soup ever and it will clear your nose instantly! The soup is called meso soup i think? If you go and eat at the hibachi table they give you the soup as an appetizer! Delicious!
Use a saline rinse (available at any drugstore/pharmacy section) It's cheap, non-medicated and can be used as much as needed. I've been using WalMarts brand for a couple of years now and have very few colds.
Apple Cider Vinegar. Take 2 teaspoons of Bragg's Organic Apple Cider Vinegar mixed in a glass of warm water. Repeat every 8 hours for for one day and then stop. Trust me this works as I own a couple of Preschools and stuffy itches noses, sore throats and other illnesses is an occupational hazard for us. But not anymore. Now I have even thrown away my allergy medication like Allegra and even cough syrup. The trick is to take it soon as you get any itch in your nose (within 5-10 minutes) and never ever deviate from my formula. If your stuffy nose has gone beyond into a real infection (like that yellow stuff is coming out) then the Apple Cider will have a harder time so then consider putting some Vick's Vapour into a bowl of boiling water and inhaling it with your head covered with a towel After that take some Ceylon Cinnamon Tea mixed with Honey and lie down. Also the old adage starve a fever and feed a cold holds true. You also need to get lots of nutrition so that your body has the strength to fight the blocked nose. And last but not least do some light exercise.
Cold and stuffed nose are type of things in which you should consider natural ways of treatment cuz the allopathic treatments aren't very helpful in such conditions. I prefer using Ginger and garlic oil via vapour therapy to treat them. You can get these oils from here http://www.aromaoilstore.com/ginger-oil.html.
first, you need to get the craop in you nose watery. taking a bath can to that. when you get out, blow your nose and get it out. then you take alergy or stuffy nose medicen. that will prevent you from getti ng you nose stuffed again.
