ENT Specialist Dr. Naveen Kumar's  Response

People living in cold climate do experience this sort of problem. It is because of the blockage of the sinuses following congestion of nasal mucosa. There is also possibility of acid reflux into the throat which can cause similar type of problems. I would advice you to drink plenty of warm water, do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day, try saline nasal drops 3 drops 3-4 times/day (if you are having nasal block only). Avoid oily/spicy food/coffee/tea for few days. If the symptoms do not improve please consult your ENT specialist.
