A stuffy nose is often caused by swollen nasal tissue. At the same time the body produces and excess of mucous to try and purge the infection. So snot is only a part of what your nose is stuffy. The only real fix is cold medicine which has anti inflammatory drugs.

Inflammation of the mucus membranes. Inflammation is due to your body trying to protect itself from pathogens. Its quite annoying though.

When your nose is stuffy it’s not mucous being stuck in there. Membranes in your nostrils swell up to block them, in order to keep pathogens outside.

If you will, imagine your sinus as a water slide. On a good day, water moves right through to the end (your throat). When your nose gets stuffed up, two different things happen. First, the water gets replaced with pudding. Next, the inside walls of the waterside get coated with construction foam as your sinuses swell. Now you’re trying to move pudding through a garden hose-sized hole. It’s still possible, but it’s going to take a lot more force and you’re going to feel all of that foam clogging up the works. To make things worse, leaving the pudding in there means it will get gross and chunky. Your best course of action is to clear out the foam with anti-inflammatory meds (or ginger/turmeric which show promising results in some studies) so you don’t end up with nasty chunky pudding.
