Dear Kgomotso

There are various reasons for a blocked nose. This could range from:
1. A deviated septum
2. Allergic rhinitis
3. Large turbinates (structures found in the nasal cavity)
4. Polyps (growths in the nasal cavity)
The diagnosis can only be made after a clinical examination, so you should consult an ENT surgeon for a diagnosis after investigation.
