I'm suffering from a clogged nose for the past 2 months. I know I should've gone to a doctor, but somehow I haven't. I don't think its allergies, and it seems more clogged when I'm in a room with airconditioning.

help!

Neti pot/sinus wash 3x a day. Trust me! You can also use Ibuprofen and Pseudoephedrine to help decongest.

+ 1. Have been doing the neti pot since Christmas and it has been hugely beneficial. I used to sneeze more than 20 or 30 times a day, but it has almost gone away now.

I'll bet Charlie Sheen's nose isn't clogged.

just go to the ENT doc already... you may have polyps or an anatomical cause thats new. decongestants will only help out so much if so.

actually any doc that has a nasal speculum will be able to see if there's an anatomical cause.

OP obviously has nasal cancer.

Seriously, just go to a friggin' doctor already. It's not an emergency, so don't clog up the ER, just schedule a visit with your family doctor.

Unless anatomical or polyps, its a sinus infection that would require antibiotics to knock it out.
Moisturise your sinuses after you have it cured+use dehumidifiers. See a doctor.

Neti pot or Neil Med sinus rinse work wonders. once/twice a day when you're really stuffed up, and can also up the concentration a bit. Cheap, and has solved my congestion problems.
