A.Vogel Talks Blocked Nose

Nasal congestion - that 'bunged up' feeling often accompanies a cold

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against the symptoms of cold and flu. Supplements like Echinaforce help increase the body’s resistance to infection by strengthening the immune system, allowing the body to fight the misery of colds and flu.

      Hello. Chronic infections of the tonsils and adenoids tend to be a problem with those under 30 years of age. Surgery used to be a very common treatment but it is only used as a last resort nowadays - the key criteria is the number of infections requiring antibiotics. As much as we would like to avoid these, surgery is sometimes the best solution as the problem can be difficult to treat using natural medicines. If however, you would like to persevere with natural remedies, I would suggest that you give Echinacea a trial - this will help to reduce the tendency to infection using a different approach from the homeopathic tablets you have been using.

      A blocked nose is quite a common symptom but it seldom gives rise to any serious health condition. Acute or chronic sinusitis may develop, as could nasal polyps and other much rarer conditions. For advice specific to your case, please see your local doctor or ENT specialist.

      Hello Pajwal. The treatment of a blocked nose depends on the cause. If it is a viral infection, we would suggest using Sinuforce nasal spray. However, other causes will include allergies (in which case, an anti-allergy nasal spray will be needed) as well as structural obstruction such as nasal polyps which require treatment from an ENT specialist.

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.
