In brief: Best to treat cause

It's best to treat the cause of the nasal congestion (allergies, sinus infection, etc.
) but for symptomatic relief of the congestion i suggest a steroid nasal spray and oral decongestant if needed. Different steroid nasal sprays may need to be tried to find one that is most effective.
