Will I be able to breathe through my nostrils with oxymetazoline, if i've been stuffed with allergies?
Probably: This is a nasal decongestant so most people with congestion whatever the reason, experience some benefit. The problem is that you became reliant on this decongestant effect and if you try to quit you can get "rebound" with even more congestion.
