Why is nasal congestion during night more prominent?



Night time nasal congestion
Source: breatheright

Night time nasal congestion is commonly caused by a cold, allergies, or a deviated septum.Sinuses which are being plugged. Normal airflow is not through the sinuses but rather through the nasal vault. There are two major obstructions to normal airflow in the nasal vault. One is septal deviation which can result in such convoluted air passage, that you will have up to a complete blockage of airflow usually only through one nostril, leaving the other normally flowing usually.
