How to Cure the Common Cold : How to Treat a Runny Nose


Hello. My name is Dr. Susan Jewell, and on
behalf of Expert Village, I want to talk to you about colds and flu. And I wanted to talk
to you about also ways to alleviate symptoms of colds and flu. Now in this clip, I want
to talk to you about one of the symptoms that we always, frequently have when we have colds
and flu and that is “runny nose” and “dripping nose.” So, “nasal drip” is what we call it
in medical terms. Now, there are a lot of products out there that will help you with
a runny nose and that’s antihistamine. So, you can buy over-the-counter antihistamine
tablets that will help you stop the drainage and all this constant runny nose, blowing
and sneezing. So, Contac is pretty good; it has antihistamine in it that will help with
that symptom. And also, tissue of course. Tissues are good to help with a runny nose.
But, one of the things to stop the spread of colds and flu is to stop the airalizing
of the bacteria and the virus in the air where other people can then contract the colds and
flus. So, I recommend that when you do the sneezing, (this is important to teach the
children and most adults too)…when you sneeze, you actually get the tissue and sneeze into
the tissue instead of like, sneezing out into the open air where you are going to spread
all the germs and bacteria to other people. And, if you don’t have tissues around, I know
another way is just to sneeze into the palms of your hands, so that you can at least contain
the germs into the hand. Then, of course, you’ve got to go wash your hands with soap
and water to cleanse your hands. So, these are some of the ways to address the runny
nose symptoms of colds and flus.

  1. Um, bacteria or virus? You can contain a sneeze within your hands?Clearly you have never watched hi-speed footage of a sneeze. Your hands act as a dispersion mechanism, and a transfer mechanism. The best thing to do is pint you face to the floor, bend down, and sneeze onto the floor, as far away from other's face and hands as possible. More disgusting than any of your stupid advice though is your pushing, oh, sorry, recommendation, of drugs. You can shove your drugs. Eat live, stay alive!

  2. this is so stupid. oh! make sure the snot hits the tissue. that's how much this video "cures" colds.

  3. holy shit i sneze "into" the tissue i though that i wiped my ass with it and sneezed then i wiped my noze ( lol this comment wuz mean)

  4. It is more correct to sneeze into the bend of your arm. This way you do not spread germs from your hands to whatever you touch on your way to the sink, that may not be so close by.

  5. i have a runny nose right fucking now. and this video did not help me in any way. i'm really pissed
