Nose blocked

Dear ent specialist, one of nostrils is blocked at night to the side I sleep on, so if I sleep on the right the right nostril gets blocked and left side left one, so I usually wake up with a semi blocked nose, any suggestions?

The issue of lower nose getting blocked while sleeping is though to some degree normal but if bothersome then it could be related to a disorder called allergic rhinitis. Avoid nasal decongestant drops like otrivin as they are habit forming. Consult an ENT and also ask to rule out deviated nasal septum.

hello there. this phenomenon is normal and is called the nasal cycle. you could try some nasal decongestants. or try saline nasal spray. if still persists, visit your nearest ENT surgeon and get yourself examined. regards
