All summer I dealt with a stuffy nose that maybe came from sleeping in a air-conditioned room every night, now that fall is here and winter is not far behind my nose is stuffy until I 've only used 4 boxes so far of nasal sprays because I can't sleep and the only relief is cold air so does anybody know any other remedies I can use because this is a nightmare?

  • When we used to live with my FIL he used to keep the heat on at 85 b/c he is on blood thinners and gets very cold. I couldn't breathe because of all the hot air. I got one of those cold air humidifiers and kept it right in front of my face. It was the only thing to keep my nose clear so I could sleep and it worked great.

  • Try a neti-pot. I've never used one but my sister has, and she says it works great. It's kind of gross, but if it works, then it's worth it!

  • I don't have any home remedies, but you have to stop using the nasal sprays, they are extremely addicting. You might want to try Claritin or Zyrtec instead.
