Specializes in

Vasoconstriction: Vigorous exercise by stimulating the sympathetic nervous system could be constricting the blood vessels in your nose decreasing swelling. It is possible that vitamin c and bioflavanoids might be able to block histamine induced stuffiness when you are not exercising. Look at high histamine in foods as well.
