The experts noted that the appearance of a cold does not always indicate the development of a cold. In addition, the loss of smell is not always indicative of coronavirus. With a number of ailments, swelling of the mucous membrane can be observed. For example, nasal congestion makes itself felt in case of allergic reactions. Malysheva said that the habit of warming up the nose with a runny nose can only aggravate the infection, which is associated with an increase in temperature. This “technique” does nothing but harm.
A colleague of the “Live Healthy” star, Dr. Igor Branovan, pointed out that garlic is an irritant. It is impossible to treat them with a runny nose, the same applies to snuff. Doctors have confirmed that vasoconstrictor drops provoke addiction, it is better to replace them with rinsing.
