What Is Nasal Congestion?

Nasal blockage is a common indication of an underlying issue affecting the nasal passage or sinuses. It leads to a congested nose, making it difficult to breathe. Alongside nasal blockage, you may also experience a runny nose with watery nasal discharge. Over time, nasal blockage can lead to inflammation in the airways and sinuses.

Oasis Ear, Nose, and Throat specialize in providing relief for nasal blockage and addressing the root causes behind your stuffy nose.

What Causes Nasal Congestion?

Nasal congestion has many possible causes. Most of them are acute, easy-to-treat conditions that go away on their own after a short time. However, some issues and structural deformities cause long-term nasal congestion that needs more advanced care. Some common causes of nasal congestion with treatments available at Oasis Ear, Nose and Throat are:

  • Airborne Allergies
  • Nasal Polyps
  • Sinusitis or Chronic Sinusitis
  • Cold and Flu
  • Deviated Septum
  • Chemical or Environmental Irritants (e.g., smoke, fumes)

Some causes, like cold and flu, should resolve themselves within a week or two. If your nasal congestion outlasts home care efforts, you should consider booking an appointment at Oasis Ear, Nose and Throat to discover if you have a chronic condition.
