Welcome to e health forum.

Persistent nose blocks or nasopharyngeal infections are common in many individuals. The main risk factors in such cases include - malnourishment, Stress, nasopharngeal abnormalities (deviated ‎septum, polyps), Allergy related conditions are also causes which can predispose a individual for ‎recurrent infections. ‎

Using anti histamines (Benadryl) and anti inflammatory medications (Like Motrin or Tylenol)as needed can be very helpful to control the ‎symptoms at the onset when you have them. Improving your nutrition and use of antioxidents ‎‎(vitamin C and Vit E) will also help you a lot, to strengthen your immunity.‎

In case of severe symptoms, you may need to seek a doctors help, for prescription of antibiotics to ‎treat infections, and to rule out any predisposing conditions, as mentioned above.
