    Runny nose, or rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal mucosa. Most often they get sick in the damp and cold season. As a rule, runny nose occurs when general or local hypothermia, which violates the defense mechanisms. In addition, it is often a symptom of infectious diseases( eg, influenza, diphtheria, measles, etc.).

    Rhinitis, or a runny nose, does not pose a great danger, however it prevents us from living and working in the optimal regime.

    In addition to allergic there is still a viral, bacterial and vasomotor rhinitis.

    Symptoms: Acute rhinitis begins with a general malaise, accompanied by unpleasant sensations in the throat and frequent sneezing, and then with abundant discharge from the nose. The nose thus pawns, the nasal breathing becomes more difficult. More details about the symptoms, see here.

    What's going on? Viral rhinitis is caused by the spread of the virus and is transmitted, like many infections, by airborne droplets. This type of rhinitis is characterized by an acute onset and a short-term course. The mucous membrane of the nose becomes inflamed and bright red. Allocations from the nose are plentiful and transparent. At a bacterial rhinitis of allocation yellow, purulent. Vasomotor rhinitis often occurs in the off-season, when there is a sharp change in the weather, primarily changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure. The mucous membrane of the nose in this case acquires a cyanotic shade, and the nose is permanently embedded. Nasal congestion can be caused by the proliferation of adenoids in the nasopharynx, because of which the airways are narrowed. A person with this type of nasal congestion often breathes his mouth. The same reason can be caused by night snoring.

    Rhinitis, like most other diseases, has an acute or chronic course. Acute rhinitis is well known to us, as it accompanies almost all colds. During acute rhinitis, ears may become blocked, tingling and hearing loss can occur. This is explained by the spread of inflammatory phenomena to the area of ​​the mouths of the auditory tubes, which is why their airiness is disturbed, a negative pressure is created in the tympanic cavity, the tympanic membranes are drawn in, the sound transmission is disturbed. In children, the inflammatory process in acute rhinitis spreads to the mucous membrane of the larynx with the development of nasopharyngitis or falls even lower, capturing the larynx, trachea and bronchi, that is, it has the nature of an acute respiratory infection. Infants due to difficulty in nasal breathing during acute rhinitis refuse to take breasts, lose weight, sleep badly. Often acute rhinopharyngitis in children ends with acute otitis, which contributes to the age-related anatomical feature - a short and wide auditory tube.

    Chronic rhinitis occurs on the soil of frequently recurring acute rhinitis. It contributes to the appearance of curvature of the septa of the nose and proliferation of adenoids, frequent sinusitis, as well as diseases of the cardiovascular system. With a chronic rhinitis, permanent discharge from the nose is observed, atrophy of the nasal mucosa is possible and a partial or total loss of smell is possible.

    Chronic occurs as a result of repeatedly transferred acute cold. It is manifested by constant thick discharge from the nose, a violation of nasal breathing and smell.

    Allergic rhinitis is a local manifestation of allergy to dust, pollen, etc. Such a runny nose occurs with seizures, during which there is itching in the nose, frequent sneezing, copious watery discharge, nasal congestion.

Therefore, when treating a cold in one way or another, it is necessary to take a clean handkerchief so that the self-infection does not happen again after the treatment.
    To cure rhinitis, it is better to be in a room with warm and moist air, so that symptoms of burning and dryness in nose are easier to tolerate. Food should not be annoying. Smoothing is necessary without much effort, through one half of the nose, to avoid getting mucus into the auditory tube.

    Now, I hope you already understand that the common cold is the way that our wise organism gets rid of accumulated "garbage".Let's help him.

    We follow the diet until the runny nose is over, and we drink sweaty tea for the night.

    And before that we make steam inhalations: a hot broth of one of the following disinfecting herbs( eucalyptus, sage, yarrow, chamomile, pine buds - that is);

    little camphor or menthol oil( 5-10 drops);

    2 tbsp.spoons of honey;

    dissolve the validol tablets;

    aromatic oils( eucalyptus, fir, etc.), 8 drops;

    breathe over the potatoes welded in a uniform;

    soda solution 0.5 tsp.

    It is necessary to breathe, closing with the head, and it is best to undress to the waist to sweat more effectively. When the nose is exhausted, it is imperative to immediately take a warm shower to wash off the sweat.

    By the way, Indian naturopaths offer a fun way to breathe over the steam. .. under the umbrella. In my opinion, this method will bring pleasure not only to children, but also to adults.

    Steam inhalations can not be done with a tendency to nosebleeds, with mastopathy and with hypertension.

    After inhalation for disinfection, it is good to drop 1-2 drops of any of the following into the nose from the pipette:

    aloe juice( centennial);

    Kalanchoe juice mixed with sunflower oil;

    tea tree oil;

    beet juice;

    juice of garlic or onion mixed with sterilized sunflower oil.

    You can soak in a suitable juice wand with a cotton tip and anoint inside the nose( use your nostril for each stick).Usual drops dry the mucous membrane and "pound" inside just the waste from which our body honestly tries to get rid of.

    All other hot procedures are not suitable for pregnant women. If you have a fever and you are pregnant, no procedures with hot water!

    Please do not forget that with colds and runny nose, all these hydrotherapeutic procedures are effective in combination, combined with other limitations recommended for non-medicinal methods of recovery. For example, with a cold, it is necessary to temporarily remove dairy products and white bread from the diet, as they form a large amount of mucus. Otherwise, you can breathe as much as you want over the steam, but there will be no sense in it.

    The most common complications in the common cold are sinusitis - inflammation of the mucous membrane of the accessory maxillary sinuses of the nose and otitis.

    The factors contributing to the appearance of the common cold are the following: severe gas contamination, dustiness of the air( in large cities), general body hypothermia, allergy, as well as injuries to the nasal mucosa of foreign bodies, which are much less common.

    Rhinitis is one of the most common symptoms of infectious diseases caused by viruses( rhinoviruses, adenoviruses, influenza viruses, measles, etc.) and caused by bacteria that affect the nasal mucosa after viruses( ie, secondarily).


    Allergic rhinitis is almost constant watery discharge of mucus from the nose, which is usually accompanied by itching, burning and periodic sneezing. Almost allergic rhinitis is accompanied by allergic conjunctivitis.

    Factors contributing to the emergence of an allergic rhinitis are animal hair, house dust and mites, in it inhabiting, fungal spores, etc. Also here include the pollinosis or seasonal rhinitis that occurs during the flowering period of certain plants. As a rule, not only the nasal mucosa is affected, but also the eye( conjunctivitis).

    Foreign body

    As a rule, foreign bodies are typical for children of the age group from 2 to 5 years old who can stuff small objects( beads, pieces of cotton wool, grain of cereals and legumes, etc.) to themselves or another child during the game. These small objects, living foreign bodies( insects) and can become a cause of the common cold, while sharp foreign bodies can cause bleeding.

    In the case of a foreign body of insignificant dimensions, symptoms are initially absent, and later( in a few days) a runny nose develops, secretion, usually mucopurulent and difficulty breathing.

    With a foreign body of large sizes, one-sided difficulty of breathing and mucopurulent discharge from the nose appear.

    Adenoids is an excessive increase in the nasopharyngeal tonsil. The most common increase in adenoids occurs at the age of 3 years, and after 10 years the adenoid tissue usually undergoes reverse development.

    Factors predisposing to their increase are inflammatory diseases of the upper respiratory tract( sore throats, acute respiratory infections, acute respiratory infections, bronchitis).

    Adenoiditis is an inflammation of the nasopharyngeal tonsil. This inflammation can be both acute and chronic.

    Prolonged obstructed nasal breathing is the main sign of increased nasopharyngeal tonsils, as well as abundant discharge from the nose. Such children often sleep with their mouths open, snoring.

    Some children with a significant increase in the nasopharyngeal tonsil may experience a decrease in hearing. If nasal breathing is disturbed, the child begins to breathe constantly with his mouth, as a result of which the face acquires a characteristic expression.

    An increase in adenoids can lead to impaired function of other body systems( abnormal metabolism, impaired renal and gastrointestinal function, hormonal disorders) and to abnormal development of the chest, impaired growth of the facial skeleton.

    Medicated rhinitis

    Another common cause of the common cold, and also stuffy nose - frequent use of drops for the nose. Such a runny nose, resulting from the frequent use of medications, is called drug rhinitis.

    To begin with, you can make a child a hot foot bath - at a water temperature of 40-45 ° C for 10 minutes. A plentiful warm drink( tea with lemon, broth of a dogrose, etc.).After this, it is necessary to put on a warm woolen socks. It is also possible to use preparations from sea water( Aquamalibo from the water of mineral springs, with severe nasal congestion, it is possible to use vasoconstrictive medications.) It is necessary to regularly remove accumulated mucus from the nasal passages. In addition, in this situation it will be useful to ventilate the room frequently and, if possible,

    To tilt the child's head back, enter the right amount of drops into the right or left nasal passage, immediately tilt the head down and close while leavingfrom the nostril( press against the nasal septum) into which the medication was administered, and repeat the same with the second nostril. With this introduction, the medicine will not be swallowed, but will remain in the nasal cavity.

    The doctor will listen to the complaints, the history of the disease, and then inspect the sick child. When a bacterial inflammation is attached, the doctor can prescribe antibacterial nasal agents( isofra, bioparox, etc.) In case of allergic rhinitis, drugs directed at the treatment of allergy

    will be prescribed. Immediately call a doctor ifBenke appeared one of the following: the temperature is above 39 ° C;unusually frequent breathing;noisy or shortness of breath;unusual drowsiness;rash;earache.

    If additional complications are suspected( instrumental and laboratory).
