— It is strictly forbidden to do the washing of the nose and throat of different infusions of oak bark, St. John's wort, mint. You cannot drip in a nose juice of onions, garlic and even aloe. This is a dangerous and painful procedure, which can lead to severe burns of mucous membranes, bleeding, significant aggravation of the situation.
Follow the breath of a child — if he's still breathing by the nose? Watch: how the baby is sleeping, like breathing when he's passionate about the game? Bad if the baby's lips disclosed even at 2 mm. Mouth breathing leads to drying of the mucosa, trauma and, consequently, to adenoiditis. When we breathe with the mouth, the cold air inhaled a lot of viruses and bacteria, dust, allergens, exhaust. When we breathe with the nose — air is warmed, cleaned, moistened, and immediately the blood is enriched with oxygen. A healthy person should breathe only through the nose. There are special exercises.
For example: to draw the lips close tightly and hold for 6 seconds (can be scored), add to that the smooth head tilts up and down (6 times). Repeat every day and as often as possible.
