In States, some corticosteroid sprays are available OTC w/o prescription. Stay away from nasal decongestants sprays ...Read more

Have a deviated nasal septum, don't want surgery. Been causing post nasal drip & bad breath for years, taking nasal spray & antihistamine. Not helping.
Reconsider: A deviated nasal septum can cause a lot of problems. My patients who have the surgery almost all wish they had it done sooner. Get in to see an ENT (maybe get a second opinion). He/she can give you more information pertinent to your case. Bad breathe and nasal drip can be a sign of sinusitis and if so, often needs antibiotics.
