What is nasal obstruction?

Many people with nasal obstruction experience difficulty breathing through their nose, habitual
snoring, interrupted sleep and fatigue.
Nasal obstruction is often caused by anatomical blockage in the nose, hindering airflow. As a
result, you may feel congested or “stuffy”. Home remedies and medications may offer temporary
relief. It’s only when your nasal airway is opened that you can expect to find real, lasting relief.

Common symptoms of nasal obstruction:
