Inhalation is a good helper in the treatment of rhinitis and other respiratory diseases. Note, however, that the temperature of the steam from the hot potato it is difficult to regulate, and the person runs the risk of damaging the mucosa of the nose and vocal cords, leaning over the pot too low. Also doctors warn that inhalation of hot steam when sinus swelling increases and worsens the symptoms of the disease.

Garlic contains volatile, and although they are short-lived, but still capable of rescuing people from certain viral infections.

A solution of salt and baking soda cures sore throat

But this is not a myth but true. Although the antibacterial effect of this solution is weaker than that of the modern pharmacy antiseptics, it is enough to reduce the number of pathogenic microorganisms on the mucosa. The main thing is not to overdo it with salt because of its high concentration can harm a sore throat.

The scratches and wounds you need to make plantain

In childhood we have applied to the bruised plantain leaf and the blood clot a little faster. However, to repeat this experience doctors do not recommend, because on the surface of the plant can be bacteria, which not only impairs wound healing, but can cause it to fester.

But oil, which worsen the heat transfer, only increases the area of damage to the skin, and if a person has had a chance to get off easy fright and redness, in the case of oil he almost certainly will earn a scar.

Rubbing alcohol and vinegar to help bring the temperature down

This procedure has become popular because it rubbing alcohol and vinegar really increase the heat output, and body temperature drops. However, these substances are rapidly absorbed through the skin, and the person runs the risk of serious intoxication. This is especially true of young children whose parents do not want to give antipyretic. A much safer option rubbing water.
