      One possible explanation is that you have a mucus plug that builds and this might be related to a sinus inflammation or infection. Omitting dairy produce from your diet can help reduce the accumulation of mucus in your nasal cavity - perhaps you might wish to give this a try.

      There could be a number of reasons for your blocked nose to persist and these range from allergies to structural abnormalities in your upper nasal passages. These conditions are treated differently hence, a diagnosis will help a lot. My best advice at this point is to see a doctor for further help.

Did you know?

Pregnancy can make you more susceptible to a blocked nose. Hormonal changes can cause the delicate tissues of your nose to become inflamed, restricting the flow of air and causing you to experience a blocked nose.
