hi ramu
frequent colds have to do with the whole self and body not just the nose. If you can tell us more about yourself, your health, any other problems you have (with the body try going from top to toe and think of any real problems that bother you, with the mind give us symptoms of any worries/fears/phobias etc. that affect you day to day). pls also give more information about your nose injury? also what happened 5-6 years ago that may have affected you?

Dear Erika

Thanks,

1. There is no nose injury- when something hit accidently or if I touch my nose very hardly or after face wash if I use the towel - then I have to sneeze for atleast 10 times

2. I was in India about 7 years back, that time there is no much problem,now I am in Singapore

3. Health: I am quite Ok, there is no much problem, for the past 15 months I am doing excerise regularly

4. Fear or Phobia: No, I am quite Ok, there is no such thing, like goes well

5. I feel that I am alergic to dust and other items

6. I notice that when I drink alhocal- next day I am getting cold ( even I am not using the ice)

can you able to help me?

Thanks/ramu

before we get into remedy suggestion you need to look at your house.
go around the rooms and remove any air fresheners. stops using all air fresheners. if you use any chemical sprays or cleaners in the house stop this - wet dust your house with water only. change any cleaning fluids in your house for basic non-chemical ones as much as you can. For cleaning windows use vinegar, for floors use very hot water with a tiny bit of a disinfectant (if you need the disinfectant - personally I don't believe we need these disinfectants!!!). for getting rid of smells put out a pot with bicarbonate of soda in it.
more...if you use spray deodorants -STOP- change to a roll-on or pump action (make sure it is not anti-perspirant!!! what is the point of stopping yourself sweating esp. in a very humid country where you need to perspire). anything else with perfumes (particularly spray types) lock right away in a box for now. Use non-perfumed soap, non-perfumed washing powder and so on.
If you have been using sprays then once you lock them away put on a small paper mask (or wet scarf) over your nose and mouth and go around the house and wet-dust all the areas where the spray has previously fallen.
If all the above applies then do what is suggested above and see how you nose is after a week or 2 before trying remedies .......if the above does not apply come back and tell me and I'll ask you for more info about yourself so that we can suggest a remedy.....:)

PS also stop eating anything with artificial food colourings and be careful not to drink drinks containing benzoate preservatives.
All the things mentioned above are known allergens and there are others not mentioned here...

Dear Erika

As your suggession, I have stopped using spray of any kind and also high perfume soaps, but there is no much improvement. Any further suggession or some medicine -
1. I feel that my nose is very sensitive, if I touch my upper part of the nose for 4/ 5 times stongly, I need to sneeze and also I noticed that if I take beer or other type of alhocol - I am getting this problem (of nose block) - funny..

Pls help

Thanks/Ramu

Hi Ramu
it may be that you need to give us more info on yourself before a remedy can be suggested, but it is also possible first for you to try NUX VOMICA 30c - take 2 pills (they may be tablets or pillules) on 3 days each week for 3 weeks (the best way for this is - take one pill in the morning, one in the evening every Monday, WEdnesday and Friday for 3 weeks). If you get any increase in sneezing or colds, or any other symptoms that bother you, then reduce the dosage or come back and ask about the dosage. After 3 weeks let me know how you feel!
to take - put the homeopathic pillule under your tongue and allow it to dissolve. Avoid all food, drink, toothpaste, cigarettes etc for app. 5-10 minutes before and after taking the remedy.

Dear Erika

Thanks, I have tried NUX VOMICA 30c, yes it works, no increase in sneezing but reduced by 60 - 65%, in the last 12 days, I need to sneeze only three to 4 days only rest of the days all ok but very slight nose block.

May be I need to increase the dosage or still need storong dosage or some other more powerful - pls advice

The days I am taking the Nux VOMICA - through out the day it is perfect, next days or next day evening the problem starts

Thanks/Ramu

Hi Ramu - very glad to read of your improvement.
I would advise keep to the same dosage for now.
If you improve further and begin to have no problems at all on the days you are not taking the remedy then REDUCE the dosage to 2 days a week only - otherwise continue on 3 days a week as now. Check back in 3-4 weeks to discuss your progress/dosage, or before if you have problems. :)

Not to intefere with erika's suggestion, esp. if ramu is responding, but reading this mail brought to mind something I read in a mag years ago - there was a lady with a host of problems no doctors could fix ( and of course they said these must be psychosomatic). then she went away on holiday and found that after a few days her symptoms disappeared. Returned home and was soon back with the same old probs. It took a lot of investigative work for her to track that the difference was that where she's stayed during her vacation, no iodised salt was used - just sea-salt. And indeed, once she made the switch, the nasty symptoms vanished. This long story just to wonder what was different in India vs. Singapore that caused these symptoms. Because if it's something of this nature, it must be tracked and eliminated. Good luck!

Dear Erika

Thanks for the advice, will continue the same and inform you the further development in 4 weeks- Thanks again/Ramu

Dear Minsa

Thanks for suggession, here we are using Iodinized salt both in Singapore and India, so salt may not be the cause of the problem for me, anyhow I will try to change to oridinary salt will see if there is any improvement

Thanks/Ramu
 
ramu_s last decade
No, need not necessarily be the salt - could be anything - some additive that is causing a reaction.
 
Minsa last decade
Hi Ramu - don't forget to reduce dosage (see my posting of 3 May) if there is improvement. spk soon :)
 
erika last decade
Thanks Erika, will reduce the dosage if there is an improvement

Thanks/Ramu

Dear Erika

Please note after taking Nux Vom 30 - my cold and sneezing problem improved a lot and I stopped the dosages (45 to 50 days back), now last one month I was in India, that time I was more comfortable almost 99% is ok. Now I am back to Singapore (3 days back) again last 3 days I am having the same problem again - seems like back to the initial stage - can you suggest what will be cause of the issue- now no spray perfumes and I am still avoiding all necessary thinks but how come when I back to Singapore - it is more clean, the problem become worse

Pls help

Dear Ms. Erika,

I almost have the same problem like Mr. Ramu. I live in Dubai for almost 11 years. Now from last 2 and half years I am facing the same problem. I get frequent cold and sneeze a lot. I don’t understand why I sneeze around 8 to 12 times in my office specially. I do not sneeze anywhere this much but when I sit in office I sneeze everyday and almost 8 – 12 times. I’ve changed 3 offices but suffer the same problem. I realized that I am allergic to AC in office. But here AC is everywhere. Can you please find a solution for me. Due to this continuous cold my hair and beard is getting gray very fast. May I can also use the same treatment of Mr. Ramu. Please suggest.

Thanks a lot for your help. God Bless you.
