Customer Question

I have allergic perennial rhinitis. The mucous is so bad and I am having to sleep sitting up because it runs into my chest during sleep causing extreme discomfort and fear of infection. Can you give advice specifically on how to deal with this. I am worried about pneumonia since I am 68.
