She said that nasal steroid sprays, antihistamines, and oral decongestants (after verifying with your doctor) are good options. "These medications work to reduce inflammation, congestion, and drainage. While nasal decongestant sprays work quickly to relieve congestion, they should not be used for more than three days. Longer use can worsen symptoms by causing rebound congestion. Extended use of decongestants should be done with caution and under a physician's care because they can cause elevated blood pressure."
The non-medicated remedies she suggests include saline nasal spray or irrigation, using a bedside humidifier, or inhaling steam. "Inhaling essential oils like eucalyptus or peppermint via a diffuser or nasal inhaler works well. The Salt Me Aromatherapy nasal inhaler incorporates seven essential oils, including eucalyptus and peppermint, and can be used daily for a safe and effective way to relieve sinus congestion."
