Self Care Advice

There are things you can try at home to relieve congestion symptoms, such as:

  • Avoiding things that trigger symptoms, such as allergens or smoky places
  • Taking sips of cold water when they feel the need to clear the throat – constantly clearing the throat may make things worse
  • Using a saline nasal rinse several times a day – these can be bought in-pharmacy or made at home with half a teaspoon of salt in a pint of boiled water that’s been left to cool
  • Avoiding warm, dry atmospheres, such as places with air conditioning and car heating systems – placing plants or bowls of water in a room may help to keep the air humid
  • Staying well hydrated
