How can you prevent getting a blocked nose again?
If you experience recurrent blocked noses, it’s important to determine whether they’re caused by allergies, cold and flu, or something else. Knowing what triggers your blocked nose will help you to identify effective strategies to prevent it occurring in future. Speak to your healthcare professional about possible causes and triggers.
A blocked nose is rarely a sign of a more serious issue. Still, you should visit your healthcare professional if:
- your blocked nose is not going away with treatment
- you have bloody, yellow or green nasal discharge
- you have a high fever or difficulty breathing.
