Nasal Congestions, runny and stuffy noses

Remedies, cure & relief from runny or stuffy nose & nasal congestions:

For Stuffy Noses:

1. Steam away stuffiness. For temporary relief, take a hot shower.
2. Exercise, as it acts like a natural decongestant by releasing adrenaline, which narrows swollen blood vessels.
3. Nasal decongestant sprays may provide temporary relief, but if you use it for more than 3 days, it can increase stuffiness. Don't overdo it.
4. Consider a decongestant/antihistamine combination. Some studies sugest that these combo medications may relieve congestion, but always consult your doctor about this first.

For Runny Noses:

1. Blow gently and often. For chapped nostrils, apply some petroleum jelly.
