Fever is an infection of the nasal mucosa and is most often a side effect and consequence of hypothermia or some other infection. The nasal mucosa swells and the secretion is very thick. Although not pleasant, the fever passes after a few days. If the infection spreads to the nasal cavities then the disease can last longer.

Acute fever can be manifested by copious secretions with frequent sneezing or no secretions with a stuffy nose and difficulty breathing. It is often combined with sneezing and irritated eyes, severe headache (especially when bending over), ear pain and a temperature higher than 39 degrees Celsius. If the symptoms of fever last more than two weeks, it is considered that the disease has become chronic and it is necessary to seek medical advice, because it may be chronic rhinitis, dry rhinitis caused by drugs, sinusitis, etc.

The pharmaceutical industry offers a whole arsenal of sprays, drops and ointments against mucositis, but natural preparations and old home remedies are just as effective.


- Drink plenty of fluids to keep nasal secretions fluid
- Take care that the nasal mucosa does not dry out
- Put onion compresses
- Steam your face over hot water with the addition of chamomile, pine or eucalyptus
- Baths with the addition of thyme for good sweating
- Foot baths in as warmer water as possible with the addition of linden flowers
- Linden, chamomile or ginger teas clean and disinfect the airways
- Eat as much garlic as possible and foods and beverages that contain vitamin C
- Stay in a comfortably heated room and do not work or sleep in damp and cold rooms
- Make your body more resistant to colds by taking a regular shower in cold water or putting cold compresses over your chest or back


If these difficulties last longer than a week and in the case of a temperature of more than 39 degrees Celsius, you should visit a doctor.
