  • Make your own "saline" solution: salt water. Make it a little warm and put a couple drops in your nose. Then blow your nose - It works really well. I hope you feel better soon!

  • Dont use table salt if you make your own solution to flush your nose out. It has things in it that are harsh. You need to use pickling salt. My dr. told me this after I had sinus surgery & had to irragate my nose multiple times a day. It comes in a big box.

  • another thing to try - sit in the bathroom with the steamy hot shower running. the steam building up in the room can help your congestion.

    or vicks vapo rub.
