How can I not like a cold. These are lethargy and apathy, drowsiness and a complete lack of appetite. And when a new life appears at the heart, so tiny and defenseless, anxiety for the baby is added to everything else. During the first pregnancy, I managed to avoid such diseases, but at the second one, I still caught a runny nose.
All the time I was afraid of getting sick at work, because constantly contacting with the sick, you risk very much. But nevertheless, a runny nose overcame me at home. Apparently, I overestimated the sudden warming of spring air, for which I paid for nasal congestion and minor indisposition.
The worst thing was that I could not breathe freely, and this meant that my body (and, of course, the baby) did not receive enough oxygen. Before pregnancy, I would immediately have my feet steamed, and with mustard powder, but such procedures are not recommended for expectant mothers …
The advantage of my work was that I didn’t have to go to distant lands to see a doctor, and wait for my turn at the office. All of them are here side by side, in the same building – I looked out of my office – there are no patients, and immediately for a consultation. After talking about my well-being, as well as the medical procedures I applied, I received the approval of my therapist.
Five methods of dealing with a cold
I got rid of a cold with such uncomplicated methods:
one. She kept her legs in warm woolen socks, and put on thin at night.
2. If there was no fever, then did inhalation with chamomile decoction (1, 2 times a day).
3. When it became very difficult to breathe, I buried a couple drops of Kalanchoe pinnate juice, and the rest I used thoroughly, used aerosol drops based on the water of the Atlantic Ocean.
four. Before going to bed, I smeared the edges of the nasal passages with anti-cold ointment Dr. Mom or with an ordinary asterisk familiar to everyone since childhood.
five. So where do without my favorite herbal teas? You can drink broth hips, but within reasonable limits, because it is a strong diuretic. Chamomile tea with honey, infusion of twigs or leaves of currant, they will warm, and help to recover faster.
All these tools have helped me a lot, but I want to focus your attention on the fact that before starting any treatment, consult your doctor. After all, there may be several causes of a rhinitis, and treatment, for example, rhinitis of the cold is different from the allergic rhinitis.
