What can I do about nasal congestion/inflammation swelling? Is nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase the only treatment?

In brief: Inflamed nose

It is a good treatment but some individuals improve by avoiding irritants or allergens.
Others benefit from intranasal saline or cromolyns (nasalchrom) or antihistamines (astelex or astepro). Lastly if your problem is due to chronic allergies rebuilding your immune system with specific immunotherapy is a good idea.
