How can I breathe better if my nose is blocked?

Start simple: First start with a pure antihistamine to see if allergy may be playing a role. Zyrtec, Claritin or alavert are otc and worth trying. If after a few days there is no improvement then try a decongestant as well. If after a few days you are still blocked you should see your family doctor for a prescription nasal spray either a steroid or an antihistamine. If that doesn't help you need to see an ent.
