have the cold from hell a bunged up nose.
bought nose spray.
only one type on shelf apart from the saline stuff I need strong stuff

so in addition to a streaming nose at least not bunged up anymore I now have streaming eyes, a sore throat and brain freeze.

aibu to think it should advertise bigger on the pack?

Okay. What you need to do is buy something very spicy to eat. I have chronic sinusitis and, if you eat very spicy foods, it'll clear the sinuses and get them to drain.

The saline spray is very good.

<shudders at memory of deap heat & sauna>

hot is good. have some really hot horseradish that should do the trick.
saline spray is good for hayfever etc but not enough imo if the nose it totally blocked.

I use a nose spray and damn it hurts! My top tip though, don't use it for more than a few days even if it's hard to stop! I've been nose spraying for 5 weeks! Cold long gone, but nose is constantly blocked anyway. SO AGGRAVATING!
