Hi, Anon.

Thank you for reaching out.

Treatment will depend on the diagnosis. If you have trouble breathing, you may have an infection in which case antibiotics may be given. Decongestants and/or antihistamines can be helpful and do not require a prescription. Using a saline nasal spray can loosen mucus with no side effects.
