I Always Have Blocked Nose After Swimming Am I Allergic To The Pool
Pool & stuffy noses: While pools are sometimes sources of allergens like molds & pollen (especially if outdoors), most nasal congestion following swimming is likely due to irritants like chlorine, temperature changes from getting in & out of the water, or positional changes (as you swim, blood that normally pools in the legs while upright flows towards the head more easily and fills the nasal tissues). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had a half blocked nose (switches nostrils) for months now. This also comes with a lighthead sometimes. Allergy perhaps?
Nasal congestion: Physiologically, the nasal turbinates enlarge rhythmically every 2 hours alternating sides. Hence your nose feels blocked on one side, if they are swollen from allergies. Allegra may help a bit, but a nasal steroid will help better. Some are available otc in europe, such as fluticasone. ...Read more

A viral infection: Your question suggests that the problem is of very recent onset and thus more likely from a viral infection. If this has been a chronic issue, then one would need to consider an allergic basis. Allergy is often associated with itching but a cold is not. Also fever is not present in allergy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Rhinitis: Hello. I would recommend a decongestant such as afrin (oxymetazoline). Use as directed for 5 days. After spraying the afrin (oxymetazoline), follow with saline irrigation. Not a mist but a cleaning/irrigation. Your pharmacist can help you find the rinse. Continue the antihistamine. If no improvement, then see your doctor. ...Read more
Seasonal allergic rhinitis with blocked nose, itchy eyes and nose, sneezing mostly had allegra (fexofenadine) 120 but no result please help?
Allergic Rhinitis: Nasal blockage and itchy eyes are not often helped by oral antihistamines. For the itchy eyes you may require an eye drop - the most effective are by prescription. For the nasal blockage which is caused by swelling due to allergic inflammation, you will need a steroid nasal spray - available by prescription only. A decongestant might help some, but not as well as the prescription nasal spray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
