Remove swelling with saline
Saline solution (for example, sodium chloride solution, sea salt solution) helps to remove the swelling of the nasal mucosa, which facilitates breathing through the nose.
To prepare a salt solution for a nose is simple:
A solution of table salt - a teaspoon of salt for a glass of warm water. In the prepared solution of table salt can add 0.5 - 1 teaspoon of baking soda and a drop of alcohol solution of iodine.
A solution of sea salt for the nose - 1-1.5 teaspoons of sea salt for a glass of warm water.
After active washing of the nose and removal of mucusthe effectiveness of any medicinal drops is significantly increased, because after washing, nothing prevents the drug from affecting the nasal mucosa. And vice versa: if the nose is blocked with secretions, even the best and super-expensive medications will not help to remove swelling and inflammation, as these mucus secretions slip into the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and the patient swallows them without achieving the desired result.
You need to bend over the bathroom, draw a handful of salt solution and draw it in with your nose, then spit it out. Repeat the procedure several times.
You can use other techniques to wash the nose.
Fill a warm solution with a rubber can (incommon people "pear", "enema"), bend over the bathroom, open your mouth and stick out your tongue. Then insert the tip of the balloon into the left or right nostril and start rinsing - at first with a weak jet, then the pressure can be increased. The salt solution passes through the nose, the nasopharynx and flows out of the mouth through the tongue.
