Not much you can do: With nasal steroids you can reduce the size, with decongestant you can reduce the swelling and with the allergy treatment you can prevent the recurrences. Nasal surgery is needed to remove the polyp. I hope this helps. For more make a virtual appointment at www.healthtap.com/dryetimyan
