The main purpose of your nose is to bring clean, moist, and warm air into your lungs. Here in Utah, the drier climate can cause problems for some people. Dr. Siddoway recommends using a daily saline nasal spray to supplement the moisture in your nasal passages.
Using a nasal spray with Xylotol in the ingredients can help reduce the number of ear infections in infants and young kids.
Although sinus problems and nasal problems will both include nasal blockage, runny or dripping nose, a sign that you're dealing with a sinus problem is pain and pressure away from the nose--it is usually across the forehead or between and under the eyes.
