Hi,

You habe to rule out bronchitis like respiratory tract infection as well by digital chest x ray.

You can be prescribed oxymetozolin nasal spray for congestion. It can be taken for three days.

Steam inhalation done three times a day beneficial.

Take one tsp turmeric powder with milk daily.

If congestive symptoms more than steroid should be prescribed.

You can consult nearby pulmonologist for detailed evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
