Yes! If you have allergies, you likely have swelling on the inside of the nose most of the time, and you might not even notice it. Sometimes you can tell by pinching one side of the nose to see if you can breathe out only through the other side (go ahead, try it :) ). You may also start breathing out of your mouth at night, which causes snoring and dry/chapped lips.
When you get sick, it’s a double whammy! Your nose that was already somewhat swollen, now swells completely shut, and all of that mucous that wants to come out gets trapped in your sinuses or goes backwards into your throat, causing that irritating, hacky cough.
We recommend a nasal spray that immediately works to open the nasal passages. Using this may reduce your allergy symptoms and make your coughs and colds go away faster.
