Any remedy for frequent cold leading to nose block?

My son, who is 14 years, and getting cold very often due to which he has nose block consistently. Now the problem is, doctors say that due to excessive use of nasal drops like Otrivin, it could be rebound infection. He also has a debt inside the passage ? pls. suggest some remedy for this ?

first stop using otrivin drops.
on over usage they will cause rebound block (rhinitis medicamentosa is the term used for it)
u can do steam inhalations .
but if reason for ur block is allergy u need to use steroid spray.
or if there is a block due to DNS or incr asked six eof tu binaries , it needs correction surgically
