Blocked Nose Symptoms & Relief

Learn about your Blocked Nose

Nasal congestion and sinus pressure have many causes: colds, the flu, and allergies to name a few. Whatever your triggers are, the symptoms can get to you.

Many people think a stuffy nose is the result of too much mucus in the nasal passages. However, a clogged nose is actually caused by inflamed blood vessels in the sinuses. This swelling blocks the nasal passages and stimulates the mucus glands in the nose to produce more mucus to help flush out whatever is causing the irritation, resulting in the typical symptoms of a blocked nose.

If you’re suffering from a cold or flu, the following congestion symptoms tend to occur:

  • The nose lining becomes inflamed and swollen
  • This causes the nasal passages to become narrower and therefore more easily blocked up
  • Excess mucus builds up in the nasal passages, making it more difficult to breathe through the nose
