The cure depends on the cause.  The most likely cause is chronic bacterial infection of the nose, sinuses or gums, sometimes infection with a fungus.   Whatever the cause, the “blockage” must be opened for, whatever the cause, it will continue to grow in a situation of poor drainage.  In addition to whatever antibiotic might be appropriate, nasal irrigations 2-3X/day with “nasal saline” would almost definitely, help.

Good luck
