for the past few months ive noticed i get runny nose at least once a week, that usually resolves the next day
ive taken the extra prevention by avoiding dust, pets,taking anything cold even.
and ive also noticed its always my right nostril that is blocked and not the left. besides that, there is also a whistle like noise from my right nostril when i im not having flu

can i purchase a nasal spray to prevent my flu from recurring?
