Winter allergies are widespread and in the current pandemic situation, you need to be careful and fully understand your body. One of the typical signs of winter allergies is a stuffy nose. Ranbeer Singh, an otolaryngologist at Dr. Hyderabad's Care Hospital, states that allergies can lead to runny nose, stuffy nose, itchy throat, teary eyes, cough, sore throat, and fever.
It is the inflammation of the lining of the nose that causes swelling of the nasal passages, restricts airflow, and makes it difficult to breathe through the nose. That leads to a feeling of stuffiness, which is why it is also known as "stuffy nose". Doctors explain that you may experience a stuffy nose with a cold or cough.
Here are some easy steps to put that stuffy nose at ease:
Take a long hot shower or steam.
Drink a lot of fluids.
Use a humidifier or vaporizer.
Use a warm compress
Use a saline spray
