20.27 Nose

The Nose Bath. IN a variety of nasal ailments, catarrh, colds in the head, inflammation and ulceration of the nasal passages, nose bleed, etc., the nose bath is a salutary remedy. The water is used either tepid or cold, according to the case. It should be drawn back, if possible, so that it is ejected by the mouth. Those who have injured the nasal cavities by much snuff taking will find advantage from sniffing water freely into the nostrils. If one is determined to leave off snuff, as every one addicted to it, if he regards either health or bodily comfort, ought, he will find it useful often to take cold water instead of the abominable weed.
