Stuffy Nose (Nasal Congestion)

A stuffy nose isn't from mucous clogging it but from inflammation of the tissue and blood vessels lining the nose. This is why blowing your nose doesn't clear it. Congested noses are rarely serious, usually a result of allergies or colds. Talk with a nearby Carbon Health if your symptoms persist longer than three weeks or are accompanied by pain or discharge.
Treatment options for nasal congestion depend on the underlying cause, but may include over-the-counter medications or nasal saline sprays to help clear the nasal passages. It's important to speak with a healthcare professional if you experience persistent or severe nasal congestion, as it could indicate a more serious underlying condition that requires medical attention.
