I think that exposure to the cold is making my sinuses stuffy, but I'm not sure what to do about it. Its been happening to me ever since its been cold and its making it hard to sleep at night. Is there anything I can do about it? I'm a 28 year old female and I take flonase and zyrtec for my allergies.

It would be ideal for you to have examination of nasal cavity once to rule out nasal tonsils , because in some cases person with nasal tonsils presents with such symptoms and exposure to cold aggravate symptoms .

You may have anti allergic pills and Flonase once you get examination please .

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

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
