Hello There are cushions inside the nose which we call them turbinates, that help in moistening the air we breathe. These cushions swell up during an attack of cold or allergy. That's when you feel blockade of nose. Do steam inhalation . also you can benefit using nasal decongestant drops. Take orally decongestants like levocitrizen at night for a week. Take care
