Successful treatment for this condition depends upon correct diagnosis. The two underlying reasons for nasal congestion are inflammatory and structural, and both often coexist. Inflammatory causes primarily include allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. Structural causes include a deviated septum, turbinate hypertrophy, and sometimes nasal or sinus polyps. Frequently people have underlying allergy in addition to anatomic obstruction. Again, each of these causes for nasal congestion have separate treatment regimens and a correct diagnosis is required.

At Corpus Christi ENT Sinus & Allergy we thoroughly evaluate for and treat all causes of nasal congestion.
