If you have tumors in your nasal passages, a doctor may perform a biopsy to determine if they are malignant and may recommend surgery for removal.

Surgery may also be recommended for a deviated septum if other treatment methods are unable to relieve symptoms.

Infections – such as a cold, flu, or sinusitis – and allergies are frequent causes of nasal congestion and runny nose. Sometimes congestion and runny nose can be caused by irritants such as tobacco smoke and car exhaust. This condition is called non-allergic rhinitis or vasomotor rhinitis.

Infants and children

Nasal congestion is a common issue in children and infants. However, because infants breatheTrusted Source mostly through their nose during the first few months of life, nasal congestion could potentially interfere with feeding and cause breathing issues, though this is uncommon.

For these reasons, it’s best to contact a pediatrician right away if your infant has nasal congestion. This is especially important for infants under 3 months old and those with other symptoms, such as a persistent cough, fever, or breathing problems.

The pediatrician can then work with you to find the best treatment options for your baby.


Nasal congestion rarely causes major health problems and is most often caused by the common cold or a sinus infection. Symptoms usually improve right away with proper treatment.

If you experience chronic congestion, speak to a doctor to investigate the underlying problem and determine the best course of treatment.
