It’s the season of stuffy nose and achy heads, a time when many people rush to their local clinic, drugstores to relief their sicknesses. But it’s crucial to evaluate the likely cause of your stuffiness. Your nose doesn’t just swell up for no reason. It could be allergies to pollen, dust, or a case of virus, bacteria or fungal infections. Even changes in weather can leave our sinuses blocked. With our humid environment, the notorious allergy-causing dust mites thrive during this time of year. Yikes!

When we feel stuffed up, it’s likely that the membrane in our nose is inflamed or irritated.  Blood vessels in the membranes of our nose and airways become dilated and cause very uncomfortable congestion. It kept us awake at night, and even makes our eyes watery! At the same time, our nasal passages start producing increased amounts of mucus as they try to flush out the source of irritation… That’s why we have those nasty snotty and runny nose..

The way decongestant works is that it will promote the narrowing of the blood vessels in the nose. They may come in various forms including nasal sprays, drops, tablets or capsule, liquid or syrups or topical treatments like rubs or balm. The common active ingredient used by many biopharmaceutical companies is steroid. Yes, it is highly effective in reducing the swelling. However, it may pose some undesirable side effects on the body.

They need to be used sparingly and some of the side effects that may come along with it include insomnia, heart palpitations and trembling. And.. if you have any of the following conditions such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, hypertension or irregular heartbeat, it may worsen your conditions!
