Learn how nasal congestion can make colds worse and what you can do
Sometimes the worst part of a cold is nasal congestion; it is annoying, sometimes painful and can disrupt sleep patterns. Although medicines such as paracetamol can relieve the aches and pains that accompany a cold, they don’t do much to relieve nasal congestion. This can complicate a cold to the point where the simple everyday act of breathing becomes difficult. You may also become tired and develop pains underneath the eyes and in the forehead. A lack of concentration can impact your daily routine.
