Identify trigger: To determine the correct treatment, the cause of nasal congestion should be found. There is a wide range of triggers including allergies, deviated nasal septum, nasal polyps, chronic sinus infection, adenoid hypertrophy, medication side effects, etc. An allergist or ENT doctor can assist you by taking a thorough history and performing an exam and other tests as needed.
