    Hi there,  which country are you in, as our meds in England could be different  from yours.

    I too suffer Rhinitis and it's a miserable condition.  Also so many on this forum suffer Eustachian Tube Dysfunction too.

    Has the person suffering tried Flixonase Aqueous Steroid Naal spray.  I've used this for years and it does help to some extent.

    Decongestants I use last up to 8 hrs, however, they should only be used for a very short time.  Try Citrizine Antihistamine just to see if they help.  I've tried absolutely everything for this condition....blocked on my left side every night as soon as I lie down.  Possibly a de-humidifier could potentially help.  The person should get his/her doctor to check up their nose to see what's gong on...could have polyps, as I have too.  I sooner suffer with a blocked nose than blocked ears, as at least some relief can be made from a decongestant.  Towel over head and inhale steam and Olbas oil on a hanky to breath in too.

    Sorry not very helpful.  Hope some relief is found soon.

      Hi Anne thanks so much for your reply,yes I live in U.K West Mids

      Unfortunately he has tried all over the counter remedies and DRS

      Prescriptions,while they give him a small relief it's not much,he says

      He gets no more than a five minute relief (I suspect it's a little longer you

      Have to remember we're talking about a bloke lol)but I do feel really

      Sorry for him, the cause of his stuffy nose is a side effect to his meds

      I wondered if anyone out there was suffering from the same thing

      And what did they do to get relief,your idea of the towel over the

      Head yes is good,you or I would do it,He on the other hand would

      Chuck it through the window lol lol lol

      Many Thanks Anne

      Morning,  You made me laugh.  Yes, you're right men certainly aren't like women (or most of them aren't) we try and help ourselves !  If you really think the meds are to blame and he's still taking them, I guess nothing can be done until they're finished.  Sad what he's been through though.  Buy some Olbas Oil for is to sniff.  I use it a lot and used to post it out to my sister in the US who thought it was amazing for her sinus issues.  (sadly she has died of cancer)

      Good Luck
