Blocked nose

Pick Me Up! - - HEALTH & HAPPINESS -

Nasal con­ges­tion is when your nose be­comes stuffed up and in­flamed. It can be un­com­fort­able and an­noy­ing, but it’s not usu­ally a cause for con­cern. The most ob­vi­ous cause of a blocked nose is a mi­nor ill­ness, such as a com­mon cold or flu, and it’ll usu­ally clear up af­ter a week. If you ex­pe­ri­ence con­ges­tion for longer than 10 days, or if it’s ac­com­pa­nied by a high fever or si­nus pain, it could be a sign of some­thing more se­ri­ous.
