What is rebound congestion?

Rebound congestion occurs is a reaction to congestion treatment where you become even more congested than you were before the treatment. Rebound congestion is caused by overuse of nasal spray decongestants, which are a common treatment for rhinitis congestion. Once the medicine wears off, your nose may flare up. If you find nasal sprays helpful in treating your rhinitis, take care not to use them for more than three or four days at a time. Talk to your Doctor about your symptoms and treatment options.
