HOW TO GET RID OF A RUNNY NOSE WITH HOME REMEDIES

21.07.2021 10:33

A runny nose can be one of the most annoying symptoms of the common cold. If you prefer using natural remedies, there are plenty of options that can help. Explore the following home treatments to see if any work for you and your runny nose.

  1.  Drink plenty of fluids

Drinking fluids and staying hydrated when dealing with a runny nose can be helpful if you also have symptoms of nasal congestion.


This ensures that mucus in your sinuses thins out to a runny consistency and is easy for you to expel. Otherwise, it may be thick and sticky, which congests the nose even further.


Avoid beverages that dehydrate rather than hydrate. This includes drinks like coffee and alcoholic beverages.

  1.  Hot teas

On the other hand, hot beverages like tea may sometimes be more helpful than cold ones. This is because of their heat and steam, which help open and decongest airways.


Certain herbal teas may contain herbs that are mild decongestants. Look for teas that contain anti-inflammatory and antihistamine herbs, such as chamomile, ginger, mint, or nettle.


Make a cup of hot herbal tea (preferably non-caffeinated) and inhale the steam before drinking. Sore throats often accompany runny noses — drinking hot herbal tea can help soothe a sore throat, too.

  1.  Hot steam inhalations

There are different ways to perform a hot steam inhalation, but the basic idea is the same. A person adds herbs or essential oils to hot water, leans over the water, and breathes in the steam.


A 2015 study published in the Journal of Dental and Medical Sciences looked at ways steam inhalations containing various additives helped to treat symptoms of the common cold.


The study found that symptoms improved faster and more effectively with inhalations than without.


  1. Eating spicy foods

Spicy foods can make a runny nose worse. However, if you’re also having symptoms of nasal congestion, eating spicy foods can possibly help.


If you can tolerate quite a bit of heat in your food, give it a try. If you’re unaccustomed to spiciness, try a little bit of spicy seasonings at first to see if it helps.


Hot spices like cayenne pepper, ghost pepper, habanero, wasabi, horseradish, or ginger are great options. These spices, while also creating a feeling of heat when eaten, dilate passageways in the body and can relieve sinus issues.

  1. A hot bath

A person can likely get some of the benefits of steam inhalation while soaking in a hot bath. Resting in a hot bath will naturally lead to inhaling some steam, while also helping to relax the muscles of the body.


There are many home remedies you can try to get relief from a runny nose without using medication. None of these remedies are designed to actually cure or completely get rid of the underlying causes of runny noses — namely colds, viral infections, or allergies. These approaches will only give you relief. Make sure to seek more direct treatment if you’re experiencing colds, viruses, and allergies.
