    If medication didn't reduce them, surgery would be required. ALso required to repair the deviated septum. In the meantime, have you tried the nasal strips at bedtime? They work well for a lot of folks...

    All depends on the cause. Is it allergies? Then a steroid nasal spray could help. Othewise, surgery is the only cure.
