    Apr 19, 2010 How Can I Take Care of Myself? It can affect your nose, throat, sinuses and ears. If you have a stuffy nose: If you have a runny nose, use a mild antihistamine (e.g. Benadryl or Diphenlydramine) Drink lots of fluids (water, fruit juice, tea, clear soup broths and non-caffeinated carbonated beverages).

    To unstuff your nose, take a decongestant. Look for products that contain the active ingredients phenylproponalamine, phenyleprhine, or prseudoephedrine. Try Sudafed, Actifed, Dristan, Aspirin-free Congespirin or Contac.To help you fall asleep, Eat a light snack before bedtime. Bread and fruit will do nicely an hour or two before you hit the hay. So will a glass of warm milk. Avoid sugary snacks that can excite your system or heavy meals that can stress your body.Take a warm bath. One theory held by sleep experts has it that normal body temperature play off the bodys circadian rhythm. Those temps are low during sleep and at their highest point during the day.Along those lines, its though that the body begins to get drowsy as its temperature drops. Therefore, a warm bath taken about 4 or 5 hours before bedtime will raise that temp. Then as it begins to fall, youll feel more tired, which will make it easier to fall asleep.Hope I helped

      are you a nurse

    • cynthia greenhow says:

      I have had allergies and sinus rhinitis all my life like my mother and father. I’ve always used the combo antihistamine and decongestant together.

      In my doctor’s office the other day I heard a nurse give the same answer as yours about not staying on it too long. Why would that be if it works once, wouldn’t it work all the time? I also suffer from bloody nose and wonder if dilated blood vessels would aggravate an already bad situation. Also thought it would dry my nose up, instead of stuffing it up.

      Any help appreciated. Thanks. Hoping you are part of the medical profession.
