Hi there ...

Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 2 years ago.

The most effective way to overcome swelling is frequent installation of saline drops , saline not only helps to open nostrils but also reduce inflammation .

Will saline cure the infected nostril
Expert:  Dr. Abid replied 2 years ago.

You should also take Tab Advil , it will help to reduce inflammation .

Saline will only reduce swelling and blockage , it will not treat infection .

Observe for fever , if you have fever then antibiotics are indicated to combat infection .

Regards ***** ***** luck .
