I am a Nigerian i have same symptom one of my nose trim is always block leaving the other to struggle for air when I inhale its always dried and cold I get relief by wearing a nose mask, talking, walking when there is enough air and when I am driving a bike with me pushing against the air I get relief the experience is really depressing I have gone to see a doctor who referred me to see a specialist ENT still no improvement I hope someone sees this comments and lend a helping hand its really frustrating
I get scared of a new day sometimes I dont feel like waking up from sleep
I dont want to die
Because I think about it every time since this whole nose problem started

Hello Henry @henryfromnigeria, Welcome to Connect. I know it can be terribly frustrating when you are having trouble breathing and your nose is dried up and congested. I have had similar problems for quite awhile with one side of my nose feeling stuffed up and hard to breathe through that side of my nose. My ENT did prescribe a special nasal spray from Mayo Clinic that I used for about 4 months, twice a day after using a saline nasal rinse in the morning and at night. The 3 ingredients are Mometasone to reduce inflammation, Ipratropium to reduce nasal drainage and Diphenhydramine which is an antihistamine to help reduce nasal drainage. The product description on my prescription is MOMET 0.033% – IPRA 0.02% – DIPH 0.02%.

I have been off of the spray for about 3 months now and still doing OK but my nose does get a little dried out so I continue to do the twice daily saline nasal rinse. I recently saw a tip from another member about using a product call Ayr Saline Nasal Gel – https://www.amazon.com/Ayr-Saline-Nasal-Soothing-Ounce/dp/B0010NSC1U. I ordered some and have been using it for a few weeks and it does help keep the nose moist and easier to breathe.

Have you tried using a sinus rinse or a nasal gel to see if it might help?
