What is the best allergy medicine for nasal congestion?

Pseudoephedrine

Head-nose
Decongestants work best for nasal congestion, and there is only one over the counter medication that works well for this problem, and that is pseudoephedrine. This medication is only available by asking the pharmacist. Nasal steroid sprays are the most effective medication for childhood allergies, in children over the age of 2, when medications are needed on a regular basis.

Will taking prometrium for perimenopause improve my nasal congestion ( allergies)?

Probably not

Epiglottitis
Progesterone may increase nasal congestion. Prometrium, micronized progesterone, even administered by mouth, has less side effects than other preparations and less likely to cauase it. However, it would be unlikely to improve nasal congetion.

Do I have allergies, cold or flu? I have alot of nasal congestion and a tiny headache but i've taken tylenol about 3 mins ago but it hasn't kicked in.

Decongestant

Stuffed_nose
Tylenol might help your pain but would not help the congestion. Try taking a decongestant (pseudophedrine) and anti-histamine (Benadryl or Claritin) if you also have a runny nose. Try using a saline nasal spray or a humidifier at home.

Seasonal allergy remedy? Constant face pressure, itchy throat, nasal congestion, post nasal drip, etc. happens every year with the pollen

Many meds

start with an over the counter antihistamine such as Allegra or Zyrtec. if your symptoms are not usually controlled on them, you need a nasal spray from your primary doc. if that too doesn't help, time to see an allergist who can help you with different treatment options.

Re-occurring eye reactions. Both eyes swell - lids & area, then rash. Lasts 2-3 weeks. Not redness in eye or nasal congestion. Allergy tests show cat?

See a dermatologist

Epiglottitis
You need a prescription calcineurin inhibitor cream or ointment. Do not use cortisones on eyelids. Meanwhile get rid of the cat. How about a dog or maybe a pet rock?

Dr. Lee M. Perry answered:

How do I tell the difference on whether i have a cold or allergies? And how to get rid of nasal congestion ?

Several differences

Ocean
Common colds are often characterized by fever, whereas allergies never cause fever. Also, allergies are more likely to be predictable based on season, and are more likely to last longer, whereas the common cold is usually "self-limited" and goes away within 10-12 days.
