Nasal Congestion
My friend has a problem of nasal congestion which lasts about 5 to 6 months in a year.Doctors told that this is due to dust allergy.Accordingly some medicines were prescribed.He is taking vacccine also thrice in a week for the last 4 months but problem is still there.The most concern is that he reguraly takes otrivin nasal spray for temporary relief once in 2 hours.He has been dependent on it.Please let me know what may be the cause behind it and how to resolve.

Hello..... These nasal decongestants should not be used for long period of time.. When he is using it shouldn't withdrawal it's usage suddenly.. Best way is to prevent dust exposure.. Tell him to take necessary precautions for dust control. Keep room clean..immunotherpy takes years to work.
