Runny Nose | How To Get Rid Of A Runny Nose | How To Stop A Runny Nose

Tushar Wankhede he looks like Messi who
agrees then like tushar thank you for your comment
it's got my attention because one I'm the massive Messi fan and two I really
don't think I look that Messi hey everyone welcome to another episode of
responding to your comments I honestly do think this is one of my favorite
series to film we're gonna be looking at health questions we're gonna be looking
at fun questions so while waiting for let's dive in infinity numbers my nose
is running like a tap right now infinity numbers thank you for your comment I'm
sure we've all been there I was actually there a couple of weeks ago as well this
is from me how to treat a cold video it's also very common question well
comment I get which raises another question which is how can you actually
stop your nose from running as much because we've all been there when you
have a really runny nose you've been blowing your nose all day all week
you've used like three packs of tissue your nose has got an entirely red and
sore so we've all been there and as a health care professional the first thing
that I always think of is what's causing this what is causing this runny nose you
know because there could be various different reasons that's causing this
inflammation in the nose which is causing it to run and the inflammation we call it rhinitis that's the fancy scientific term for it when it basically just means
means inflammation in areas which is causing it to run so what's causing it
so for example when I'm speaking to a patient a few things always come to mind
are so what could it be could it be viral the cause of it
could it be environmental factors you know for example temperature differences
you're going from one room that's cold to a warmer room and it's causing this
rhinitis and could it be bacterial could it be a hormone imbalance there are many
different reasons that could be causing this runny nose so the first thing you
need to think of is what's causing it and by the way that wasn't a full list
and I will leave more information about this in description below for you if you
want to look at the reasons of what causes rhinitis so the first thing that
I recommend to any patient is to speak to their health care professional to
find out what's causing their runny nose whether it's that nurse whether it's
their doctor whether it's a pharmacist it doesn't really matter you just need
to speak to a healthcare professional so you can find out what's causing it now let's
say for the example for the comment that I've got this is from cold video so
let's say you've been diagnosed with a cold
and the cause of your in nose is viral so the cold is viral and it's causing
your nose to run so for this example generally speaking for most patients
I was said to recommend them and nasal rinse now it's called many different
names some people call it nasal irrigation so people caught nasal
douching it's all the same thing but the beauty of it is that what it's going to
do it's going to wash away that mucus and any irritants that are in your nose
which is causing this inflammation and then making your nose run and the reason
that I like this so much is that one it's inexpensive two everyone pretty much
has these ingredients at home and three is very easy to do so it's a win-win
really and the way you do it is very simple you just get one teaspoon of salt
one teaspoon of bicarbonate soda put them in a glass boil the kettle and then
pour the water in there about a pints worth of water and mix it in then let it
cool let it cool to a sensible temperature that you're not going to
burn yourself and you're going to use it to irrigate but once again I want to
repeat let that water cause it's a sensible temperature so it's cool so
it's probably like body temperature so it's not going to burn you let that
cool and I repeated a lot but you need to let it cool and now that you've made
your great solution you need to first go stand over a sink because it is quite
messy when you're doing get wash your hands first and then get one hand form
it into like a cup like this and pour it into your palm then cover one nostril
like so and then sniff it up okay sniff it up that one nostril and then let it
run back out I probably say do it about three times in each nostril and then
swap over but if you need to do it more often than that to get more comfort then
do it more often that's not a problem now when you do the nasal irrigation you
may end up getting some of this solution traveling into the back ear throat or
into your mouth and this is completely fine it's completely harmless
if you do get any of this solution in there just spit it out it's harmless
another thing that I'd like to mention is each time you do the nasal irrigation
let's say you do it once in the morning and once at night you need to make a
fresh batch you can't use that old batch so repeat the whole cycle again when
you're about to do another nasal irrigation session another option which
I'm just going to touch very slightly on is a steroid nasal sprays they can also
be used for a runny nose for example in a cold but again I would
always recommend everyone speak their pharmacist first before they purchase a
steroid nasal spray just so they can check that you're
suitable and safe to take it and also so they can advise you how to use it I
did make a video as well not long ago about a nasal spray on how to use it and
trust me it makes a massive difference if you're using it right compared to
when you're using it wrong so I will leave a link up here and in the
description below for you so if you are using a nasal spray or if using it's
great for anything else I highly recommend you to watch it thank you
question thank you for your comment may I say and if anyone's got a runny
nose right now I really hope these tips help you thank you Ingvar san Ingvar
before I read your comment I just want to say thank you for your honesty
because I appreciate it when I was circumcised my dad used to
take both shells off and put the powder with mangoes on a spoon so this is a
comment that ingvar has put from the how to swallow tablets or capsules more easily
video once again thank you for your honesty but with regards to doing that
because I have heard of patients doing this in the past as well of getting a
capsule sort of opening it in half and taking the powder inside I will
just always recommend anyone who's wanting to do this to check with their
pharmacist preferably pharmacist because they know medicines a lot better or your
other health care professionals because certain medicine you can do this and certain
medicine you can't do this at all so please please please always check with
your pharmacist before anyone opens up the capsules pause the content whether
it's on mango whether it's on yogurt whether mixing it water anything like
that just check with your pharmacist first but thank you comment and thank
you for your honesty but if anyone thinks I look like Messi leave a comment
below let me know but if you don't think I look like Messi also leave a comment
and let me know well maybe let me know who I do look
like a few times people have said I look like everything apple pro that's
probably the most common one that I get I'm a massive fan of his by the way but I
still don't see that resemblance either but if anyone's got a good resemblance
or a good look alike let me know thank you for comment tushar have a great day Elichi
which is easier to swallow a capsule or a tablet elichi thank for your comment
this is from the how to swallow a tablet video it really got my attention so I
thought I'd mention in today's video and it really depends on the size so
firstly if you've got a massive capsule and a tiny tablet obviously the tablet
will be easy to swallow but then you have different sort of shaped tablets so
you have a normal tablet which is circular but then you have caplets which
are a capsule shaped tablet and a caplet generally speaking is a lot easier to
swallow than a tablet so that's another point to consider and then lastly
tablets you have a film coated tablet normal tablet so normal tablet is sort
of powdery on the outside whereas a film coated one the best way to describe it
is it's like a smartie so you have Smarties and this will have like film
coated on the outside and they're smooth and that's what home coated tablet is it
has that sort outer surface on it makes it smooth and easy to swallow so that's
a really sort of long way of answering a question but thank you for your comment
