Although, my philosophy in the practice of my specialty, has always been what is the diagnosis before treating the patient.
There are a number of treatment possibilities. Otc Neo-Synephrine nasal spray
for a maximum of 3 times a day for 3 days. Sudafed
, a decongestant
, for 3 days. Rarely a high but short course of oral steroids
or nasal steroids. If all of these fail, see an ENT doctor.
