I have some mucus or postnasal drip in the back of my throat. No cough, no fever, stuffy nose, but my throats feels irritated. Not sore because I eat and drink just fine. What could be going on? I have a newborn so I don't want to be contagious.

Wear a mask: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A newborn is vulnerable to catching other people's infections. ...Read more

Nasal spray can help: Usually, the nose gets stuffed because of either mucus or just tissue swelling in the nose. With mucus, you can try to rinse it out with a saline nasal rinse. If mucus is cleared and you still have a stuffy nose, a steroid nasal spray can reduce swelling of the nasal passages and improve the stuffy nose. ...Read more

Sleep and time.: Those symptoms are classic for a viral infection. The best thing you can do to get over these types of infections is sleep and get lots of rest.

Possibly: You didn't mention whether you have fever or chills along with this.

In the meantime, use warm, saline gargles, hydrate and rest. That is comforting and easy to do from home. Keep your neck warm and covered. ...Read more

Anyone know what is a surefire way to get rid of a stuffy nose?

Slippery slope: Saline rinses (neilmed sinus rinse for example) are safe, non-medicated way to help.

Nasal steroids (prescription) work if you use them regularly, but are more for allergies rather that a cold.

Afrin, works fast in a pinch, but be careful this is "addictive". If you use it for more than a few days in a row, the stuffy nose will come back with a vengeance. Good for before a flight or big date. ...Read more

I have non allergic rhintis. Is this why I get slight headaches and stuffy nose somewhat often?

Yes, likely: Non-allergic rhinitis is diagnosed typically by having negative allergy skin tests, but a nasal swab which shows inflammation (eosinophils). If you haven't had those tests, see an allergist. If you have, hopefully you were prescribed daily nasal steroids. If you take the nose spay daily (even on days you feel okay), then your nose will be less stuffed and your headache will go away. ...Read more
