    If it is an allergic reaction to food you could try benadryl to counter the allergy. An over the counter Allergy medication like Zyrtec or Allegra will help keep allergies at bay. To break op mucus take Guifenasen, aka Mucinex. If you are an adult, take it according to the label.

    Mucinex seems to be working. I will keep it up for the next few days till it clears.

    also drinking Fluids and making soups and raw foods.

    If you have nasal congestion and blocked sinuses you should try some sort of decongestant. Anything with Pseudoephedrine in it should help. I would generally go for something like Actifed, which has a combination of pseudoephedrine as the decongestant, and the anti-histamine Triprolidine. But I googled that, and they seem to have changed the formulation in the US and it may not be as effective.

    Ask your pharmacist for a good decongestant, they should be able to recommend something similar. They may have to keep it behind the counter, so don't automatically go for the obvious thing you see on the shelf.

    I've had sinus/nasal congestion a few times, and anything with pseudoephedrine in it definitely worked. If you think you're getting a bit of a cold, take some paracetamol as well. A decongestant treats the symptom, but not the cause.

    One of these can be handy as well:

    I gotta admit That salt water drowning helped with the stuffy nose but not the mucous dripping behind my throat.

    If you wanted to try some tea, Echinacea Complete Care from Celestial Seasonings works pretty well. It has some decongestant herbs in it along with the echinacea, along with some cough suppressing and phlegm reduction herbs.
