Hi.. You may try steam inhalation which will help in reducing the congestion.. You may need antibiotics, if you have fever or you are producing yellow colored phlegm.. Avoid exposure to cold, avoid allergens such as dust or any other products that can cause allergic symptoms... Consult a doctor if possible for good choice of medications...
