hello

Dr B :

I am here

Dr B :

is the nasal drainage clear or yellow?

Customer :

sorry for delay, computer issues

Customer :

clear

Dr B :

Have you tried a saline nasal rinse?

Customer :

not yet

Dr B :

What you are experiencing is likely an allergic reaction or a viral infection.A saline nasal rinse usually helps with symptoms. To really reduce the swelling and inflammation you may need an steroid nasal spray, which you will need to see your doctor for.It really helps ,and I advise you see your doctor to prescribe it for you if your congestion is really bothering you
