Nasal spray's work By constructing the the blood vessels in the nostril.

Sometimes it might take a bit longer to act. Please don't Take any more.

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
Okay. But still it doesn't solve the problem

What I need to do if it's completely blocked and I am supposed not to use spray again.
Expert:  ravikumarr replied 17 days ago.

Have you taken the spray before?  Sometimes when when self applying the spray, One might not Apply it properly. I have also suffered from BlockedNasal passages messages and it has always worked ,I'm not sure why it is not working working for you. One option is to have someone spray it for you
