Sleep bad breath: Bad breath after sleep is common to almost everyone due to the accumulation and activity of bacteria during the several hours of sleep. Proper brushing, flossing and even rinsing with a good mouthwash before bed can reduce the activity of the bacteria.

Nasal congestion: You can use a decongestant and a saline nasal spray to ease your symptoms but ultimately you need to see an allergist to get the problem fixed.
