Customer Question

Hello, I have a persistent blocked nose
JA: What are all your symptoms? Are you taking any medication?
Customer: Blocked nose - when I sniff it sounds like it's blocked but nothing comes out when I blow no matter how hard. Also have a very slight cough. Symptoms since March 2020
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about the cough?
Customer: Yes. I was prescribed a nasal spray to take for a month and it didn't work so I have since tried a different nasal spray over the counter (otrivine congestion relief). Neither have helped
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No
