Nose congestion won't go away

I was sick for about 2 weeks early last month, nasal and chest congestion, post-nasal drip and coughing a lot, felt sick and tired but no fever.

It's been over a month since I got rid of those symptoms, but my nose is still congested, I've been taking Nasonex 2x a day but it only relieves the congestion for about an hour or two. Does anyone know of a more effective way of getting rid of nasal congestions? I also have a headache, but it doesn't bother me much most of the time. Could this be allergies?

Re: Nose congestion won't go away

Artemis - i know what you're going through. here is what helps me the best. I bought myself one of those "NeilMed" sinus rinse squeeze bottles.... this is what you do.

1- boil drinking water
2- fill the bottle
3- mix the solution it comes with
4- rinse your sinuses until the bottle is finished
5- spray "4 Way"

again i do this at my own risk, i am not a medical pro so im just sharing my personal idea.
