Though mucus can contribute to the stuffed up feeling, nasal congestion is the swelling of the tissues in the nose and sinuses caused by inflammation. Advil® Congestion Relief re-opens your airways by constricting the blood vessels in your nose and sinuses.
Advil® Congestion Relief also treats the pain associated with colds and allergies. The philosophy behind Advil® Congestion Relief is that cold-sufferers who treat only nasal congestion or the pain associated with it really only address half the problem. Both pain and congestion are major symptoms of colds so it just makes sense to treat them both with just one pill.
