Question: I have had alternating blocked nostrils for one year completely and also I have had red/bloodshot eyes for the same time period. I got sick a lot in 2018, waking up with a lot of mucus which would lead to a chest infection so I was on antibiotics at least four times but I stopped getting sick in September 2018 when I started to take "Air Defence Healthy Immune" by NOW. However I still have one blocked nostril at all times and I am waking up with bloodshot eyes. Can anyone tell me what the issue is?

Hii.Its is likely from your symptoms that you are suffering from allergic rhinosinusitis. Please do a X ray paranasal sinus to see whether any infection is present in your nose and sinuses. Consult a ENT surgeon and do a nasal endoscopy to see the exact condition in your nose. In the meantime start fluticasone nasal spray,steam inhalation. Avoid allergens like dust,more,cold.
