Blow Up Your Cold
Blowing your nose could make your cold last longer. Using x-rays, researchers discovered that nose blowing actually forces some mucus backward. You may propel bacteria and viruses directly into your sinuses, which may trigger reactions that could make your cold worse. Take antihistamines instead, as soon as symptoms appear.
