Have you tried a saline nasal spray for the nasal congestion? You can just squirt salt water into the nose (nasal irrigation) and it is something that you can mix at home.
You would not believe the gunk that comes out and the relief that is felt afterwards.
To make your own solution:
¼ teaspoon of kosher salt (kosher salt has no iodine or other additives)
¼ teaspoon of baking soda (to buffer the solution and make it less irritating)
8 ounces of water
Mix and squirt gently in each nostril with a squeeze bottle.
