Nasal congestion, or a ‘stuffy’, ‘blocked’ or ‘bunged up’ nose, is one of the most common conditions often associated with colds, allergies or sinus problems.
It is caused by the membrane lining of the nose becoming inflamed and irritated, and thus an accumulation of excess mucus builds up. When the lining of the nose swells the airways become narrower and more easily blocked with mucus, making it difficult to breathe through the nose.
There are numerous causes of nasal blockage ranging from a deviation of your nasal septum to nasal polyps. During your consultation we will endeavor to find the cause of your symptoms and advise about the best possible treatment options.
