Nighttime nasal congestion is commonly caused by a cold, allergies, or a deviated septum. You may have tried common cold treatments or allergy products to relieve your nighttime nasal congestion, but those may not provide the relief you are looking for, and many people prefer a drug-free option.
Causes of Nighttime Nasal Congestion
From pesky allergies to the common cold, nighttime nasal congestion can flare up all year long.
Allergies Millions of people suffer from nighttime nasal congestion due to their allergies. Prevalence of nasal allergies is increasing — affecting as many as 30% percent of adults and up to 40 percent of children.1
Colds Americans suffer from 1 billion colds each year. Adults average two to four colds annually and children average six to 10. A stuffy nose caused by inflammation from colds makes getting enough rest difficult.
Deviated Septum The septum is the cartilage that separates the nostrils. A deviated septum makes it harder to breathe through one or both sides of your nose.
