Answer

Decongestants

Decongestants reduce mucosal edema.

Phenylephrine nasal (Neo-Synephrine)

Applied directly to nasal mucous membranes where it stimulates alpha-adrenergic receptors and causes vasoconstriction. Decongestion occurs without drastic changes in blood pressure, vascular redistribution, or cardiac stimulation.
