What Is Causing My Nasal Congestion?

There could be a number of causes behind your nasal congestion. While sinus infections tend to be the culprit most often, other potential causes include allergies, hay fever, nasal polyps, chemical exposures, environmental irritants or a deviated septum. A doctor can identify the underlying cause of your congestion and offer a plan to effectively treat it.
