Understanding Congestion

Let's take a look at where we feel congestion, and what is going on when we do.

If you’re feeling Under Pressure, the below guide will help you understand the places we feel congestion, and why.

NOSE: Tissue around your nasal passage becomes inflamed making it harder to breath through your nose.

FOREHEAD: Inflamed sinuses can't drain mucus making your head feel blocked and heavy.

CHEEKS: Dubbed “The Large Sinuses,” cheek sinuses hold a lot of mucus which means a lot of congestion.

EARS: Excess mucus can back up to your ears which can make them feel full and achy. We hope that clears things up!
