Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First, I'll try to answer your nose first. Nasal congestion alternately right and left is a very normal thing to happen. This alternating nasal congestion is caused by the enlargement and reduction of the nasal passage alternately called the "nasal cycle". Normally the blockage due to this nasal cycle will not be too felt and will not be too disturbing as long as the person does not close one of his or her open nostrils. If indeed this nasal obstruction is to interfere with your breathing, then you can do an examination to the ENT doctor to see if there are other diseases in your nose that cause nasal obstruction.
Regarding your saliva that balloons like a balloon, it is most likely due to the increased viscosity or viscosity of your saliva. The thickness of saliva can increase due to several possible causes, including:
dehydration or lack of fluids
there is a blockage in the saliva outlet (for example there is a stone in the saliva outlet)
side effects of certain drugs
radiation therapy in the head and neck area
cancer of the salivary glands
You can try to drink more fluids (at least 2-3 liters a day), try to stop smoking and avoid excessive alcohol consumption as well. Afterwards look again at the viscosity of your saliva whether it is still thick or not. If indeed you feel very disturbed by the condition of your saliva, you can try to see your dentist for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
