Stops inflammation: Steroids (different than the steroids that athletes use) are medicines that have many effects, but one is to turn off inflammatory reactions, especially allergic inflammation. Because they have so many effects, they are problem taken by mouth over time, where they are absorbed and can cause side effects. In the nose they are not absorbed, so there are few side effects.

Nothing really works: Truly no tea exists to cure the symptoms of a common cold or allergies despite what may be out there. And very little improvement if any.
A member asked:

Thick nasal mucus - I have to blow my nose very hard to get the plug feeling out, it is commonly very thick, white (not clear). Should I be concern?

Thick nasal mucus: Thick nasal mucus can be related to sinusitis, but not necessarily. If you have chronic allergies or recurrent infections you should consult a doctor who can identify if there is an opportunity to improve nasal inflammation with sprays or treat infection with antibiotics. You may benefit from good nasal hygiene as well which involves using salt water rinses to clear mucus and allergens.
