A runny nose is one of the most unpleasant manifestations of a cold. It deprives the sense of smell, and with it, often, and appetite, interferes with sleep and seriously impairs overall health. You can cope with a runny nose with the help of vasoconstrictor or antiviral drops, but folk remedies are no less effective.
aloe juice; - water; - honey; - beet juice; - iodine; - horseradish; - lemon juice
The most common folk remedy for the common cold is aloe juice. Bury it in each nasal passage 3-4 times a day. If you have any discomfort, dilute the juice with water in a 1: 1 ratio. If you are not allergic to bee products, add some honey to the juice. Usually, a three-day course of treatment is sufficient to eliminate all symptoms of a cold.
Beet juice is no less effective. Bury it three times a day, 2-4 drops. In children, beetroot juice can irritate the mucous membrane, and therefore it is better to use it diluted. You can also put cotton swabs soaked in juice into the nasal passages.
Iodine is a good remedy for the common cold. At night, smear it on the wings of the nose and draw a line a centimeter thick just above the eyebrows. In the morning, not a trace of iodine will remain, as well as from a cold. You can also grease your feet with iodine, and then put on warm socks on your feet. Two or three such procedures will be required.
Grate horseradish on a fine grater, put it in a jar and close it with a lid for 15-20 minutes. After that, open the can and take a deep breath over it with your mouth. Hold your breath for a few seconds and exhale slowly through your nose. Repeat the procedure three times. Such inhalations are effective not only for mild rhinitis, but also for its complications.
At the first sign of a runny nose, lubricate the wings of the nose with lemon juice. In case of profuse discharge, drip a drop of juice into each nostril. At the same time, the sensations are not the most pleasant, but the effect of the treatment is felt after the very first procedure.
