Blocked nose at night

My wife is facing this problem for more than 4-5 days now. Because of the stuffed and blocked nose, she could not breathe properly at night resulting in loss of sleep. She has to breathe through her mouth. She is not comfortable with Winter season which I think could be the reason for this problem. I have taken nose drops from chemist which gives her temporary relief. But now she is facing blocked nose during day time as well. Could this be also due to any allergy?

Acute URTI or nasal allergy can cause nasal obstruction of sudden onset in adults. You should consult a good ENT doctor for proper management. Self medication with nasal drop is not recommended as the drop can itself cause secondary nasal obstruction known as rebound congestion or can cause rhinitis medica mentosa.
