Dr. John DeWolf answered:

Could you explain why do my nasal cavities feel swollen?

Membrane inflamed

Ocean
Your nasal cavities are lined with mucosal membranes that can swell and give you a congested feeling. Typically caused by seasonal illness or allergies, there are non-prescription meds you can use to help the symptoms. If you aren't sick, allergy testing may help you understand the cause of the swelling.
