In brief: Nose sprays
Over-the -counter: decongestants such as: afrin (oxymetazoline)- these work well but must be used only 3-4 days.
Saline spray is very safe to use and acts as a mild decongestant--nasalchrom is also safe and can be used daily. Prescription- nasal streroids (flonase, nasonex, (mometasone) rhinocort, etc.) nasal antihistamines (patanase and and astepro).
