Anti-nasal drugs for the nose reduce edema,swelling of the mucous membranes. The pressure decreases, the air circulation increases and the person becomes lighter. External stimulus - a cold virus or an allergen provokes swelling of the nasal mucosa, resulting in a lot of mucus. The nose appears heaviness, the head begins to ache and breathing becomes more difficult.
You can buy anti-pediatric drugs in the form of tablets or sprays. The latter can only be used for three days, since prolonged use can lead to even more stagnation.
Antihistamines are not able to cure a cold. They only lighten the patient's condition a little, the rhinitis and sneezing decrease.
When the paranasal sinuses and nose are infected with a virus,certain cells in our body begin to produce histamine.

Anti-edema drugs increase blood pressure, so people with heart disease and hypertension can not use them.
Nasal sprays with an anti-edema effect purify the nasal passages and narrow the blood vessels. More than three days they can not be used, because the condition may worsen.

Some people treat colds with antibiotics,and prescribe them to yourself independently, without the appointment of a doctor and tests. Self-medication leads to serious consequences. In fact, antibiotics can be taken only in extreme cases, when the disease has acquired a complicated form. If there is no need to take antibiotics, but a person still takes them, new health problems may appear. One of such problems with health is considered antibiotic resistance, that is, resistance to antibiotic treatment. The essence of this phenomenon is that if a certain bacterium enters the body, it will not be possible to deduce it with a specific antibiotic, since it will be immune to it.
In general, antibiotics with colds do not copecan. They effectively fight with bacterial infections. Because the common cold comes from viruses, antibiotics are powerless here. The thoughtless use of antibiotics can lead to allergies, the growth of new bacteria and health problems.
Such diseases as pneumonia, bronchitis, otitis media,angina and acute epidemic conjunctivitis arise due to bacteria, so antibiotics will cope with them. However, it is not necessary to prescribe medication yourself, because antibiotics are many and it is impossible to understand their diversity without medical education.
Sometimes a common cold is joined by someA bacterial infection that causes pain in the muscles of the face. If the cold lasts more than seven days, with a thick green or yellow slime from the nose, it means that the bacterium has got into the body.
Antibiotic resistance is a world problem,with which doctors of the whole planet are trying to cope. If you take the same antibiotic for a long time, the microbes in the body begin to change. After a while they, in general, do not react to the injected drug. If a person takes a medicine for a long time, and there are no improvements, it means that the addiction has come.
When you visit a doctor, do not insist onprescribing antibiotics. The doctor will do it himself if he thinks fit. Any medicine should be used only on prescription. If antibiotics are left after treatment, they can not be left and then drunk. Better immediately throw it away.
