Head cold

What is a head cold? Symptoms, causes, cures and when to see the doctor.

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against colds and flu by supporting the immune system – but not all Echinacea is the same! Research shows that the fresher the herb, the more effective the remedy will be, which is why our Echinaforce cold and flu remedies are made using freshly harvested Echinacea.

    Hello, everyone! I,m here to explore blogs and forum about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV). I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and i lost hope because i was out casted and rejected even by my closet friends. i searched on-line to know and enquirer about cure for HERPES and i read someone testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 so i decided to contact the same herbalist because i know that nature has the power to heal everything. i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will hel me with the natural herbs from God! after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via DHL and it got to me after 3 days! i used the med as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! its really like a dream but i am so happy! thats the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more can be saved just like me! and if you need his help, you can email him on traditionalherbalhealingcentre@gmail.com or WhatsApp +2348140033827 I,m neme amber and you can get intouch with me via nemeamber@gmail.com

      The first thing I would be thinking of will be the possibility of lingering bacterial infection - the 'bad smell' you report suggests a bacterial sinus infection and this is best treated using antibiotics. As much as we would like to avoid their over-use, this class of drug can sometimes be very useful and important. A sinus infection or inflammation could also explain your post-nasal drip. The best advice I can give you at this point is for you to seek confirmation of the diagnosis with your doctor.
