You mean nasal congestion? You may benefit to try behind the counter product antihistamine / decongestant such as Allegra D ( reduces allergy response and reduces nasal passage congestion )

Other option Mucinex D ( thins mucus and decongests nasal passages ) If you could quit smoking that would probably help you in the long run ...
