Decongestant: You might try irrigating your sinuses with a saline solution using a neti-pot, and also taking some Pseudoephedrine (ask your friendly pharmacist). If that does not work there is oxymetozaline spray, but this can be dangerous if used too often. If these simple things don't solve the problem you might want to see an ENT doctor. Good luck.
