Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery

Time, rest, liquids: Inhalation of steam, eucalyptus, sauna, lots of things to help. Usually the lungs and nose are tied together(one airway theory), so decongesting that for a few days (3 or less)with over the counter oxymetazoline and using nasal saline may help.
