Hello Doctor! I am 26 years old male. I have a slight breathing trouble when I go to sleep. I couldn't breathe properly when I'm lying on my sideways and it worsens when I'm lying on my stomach or on my back. When consulted ENT specialist, he told me that there is growth in my nostrils which blocks free flow of air. He suggested me not to go for any surgeries as it is not long-term effective, instead, he suggested me to take nasal drops (otrivin o, nasivion, flutiflo). But certain researches say it is not advisable to take these nasal drops regularly. I don't have asthma or any other troubles. My height is 170cm and my weight is 74kgs. Please advice me some natural ways to cure. Thank you Doctor!

Reduce your weight. Tonsil obsruction will alwaysbe there. And tonsil enlargement willl not reduce with otrivin/flutiflo nasal drops. Have a second consultation by ent spe.
