Rhinitis or a Blocked Nose
Rhinitis, the inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane is the most common cause of nasal obstruction. It causes cold-like symptoms, sneezing, itchy eyes, as well as a blocked, runny or irritated nose.
It is usually caused by an allergic reaction which is termed allergic rhinitis. Other causes of nasal obstruction include enlarged adenoids, a deviated nasal septum or nasal polyps.
