10 -14 days. https://www.cdc.gov/getsmart/community/materials-references/print-materials/hcp/adult-tract-infection.pdf Using too many things in the nose too often can cause a rebound congestion. If your symptoms are uncomfortable or have a temperature greater than 100.5 F more than 3 days, or temperature more than 102 see your doctor. Drink extra water (if you are permitted)
