Allergy Congestions...DIY Massage

Every August to September I am going through a torture due to my Ragweed Pollen Allergies. My nose is constantly stuffed, my eyes are itchy and my throat feels like its on fire. I go through boxes of Kleenex faster than a shot of tequila.

Every sneeze gives me such a head ache that I am wishing for the winter to hurry up...and I HATE winter!!!!
I found this Do-It-Yourself massage to ease the congestion.
I would like to share that with you:

1.Perform the below routine 3 times:
    1.Perform 10 pressures on a cavity at the corner of the nostrils (point 1). You should almost close and open the nostrils when you do the round movement.
    2.Perform 10 pressures on a cavity just below the corner of the eyes near the nose (point 2)
    3.Perform 10 pressures on a cavity just below the ear, behind the earlobe (point 3)
    4.Massage the earlobe 10 times (point 4)
2.After performing the above 3 times, you should feel immediate relief of your nasal congestion. It is advised to return on the above procedure again in about 10 minutes to make it more permanent or the congestion could return.

Additional instructions: The pressures are actually round movement. Look at the pictures for exact motion.

I hope these instruction will make you feel better next time you’ve got stuffy nose. Tell me if it helps you as much as it helps me.

For my red eyes I tried so many different kinds of Visine and other eye drops that are available on the market. The best one I found so far is the Polysporin Antibiotic Eye Drops:

These drops work fast and they also can be used for minor ear infections. This is def a product I will be using for the rest of my life :)



  1. This Mama has caught a cold, boo. Nothing worse than a stuffy nose! I can't believe it but this actually worked! Thank you so much

  2. Hey, I'm gonna try to clear the blockages using your technique, thanks.

  3. Great temporary fix. I did what you said, repeated it after 10 minutes but the congestion keeps returning. So, great temporary fix.

  4. Performed three rounds of massages ... One nasal passage completely opened .. the other passage slightly stuffy. So much better than before. Waiting 10 minutes ... full stuffiness returned during 10 minute waiting period ... completed another three rounds ... One passage completely opened while the right passage is now slightly stuffy. I am grateful for this relief; however, the stuffiness is returning.
