I have a "stuffy nose" for most of my adult life (20 years). In the past when I have had a head xray (for headach's ) I am always told i have a nasal infection. Eithe one side or the other is "stuffy" all the time. Is there anything I can do?
The first thing is to determine if the "stuffy nose" is due to infection or allergy. Consultation with a board certified allergist could provide the answer. Then, with that knowledge, the appropriate treatment could be prescribed. In any event, daily nasal washes or irrigations would almost certainly be of benefit.
