Breathing via one nostril

I usually breathe through one nostril as the other one shuts down. And it's not a specific nostril, sometimes one shuts down sometimes other, never both. What must be the cause?

Hello..
Well it's possible that you are suffering from rhinitis because of which you are getting stuffed nose..I suggest you to take steam for relief...you also consult an Ent specialist and get examined for deviated nasal septum....thank you
