|RUNNING nose is a frequent problem for many.
The causes are sudden change of weather, exposure to rain and
dust, entrance of foreign bodies in the nose, exposure to A/C
environment, drinking cold drinks and eating ice-creams and
excessive swimming in hot weather.
The initial symptoms after the exposure are running nose,
watery eyes and a feverish feeling after the exposure. Headache,
heaviness of head, throbbing pain may also be there. The discharge
from the nose at first is watery and becomes thicker later
on. And it is accompanied by sneezing. Sometimes, the nose
gets blocked and the patient has to breathe through the mouth.
The cold may also extend to the middle air, causing earache.
Exposure of cold should be avoided as much as possible. Food
products containing Vitamin C should be taken. Feet should
be kept dry. Camphor, Aconinf euphrasia, gelsfmium arseniciod,
sam ucus all are good medicines.
