Cold In The Head






Source: Papers On Health

Infants often are prevented sucking by this form of
cold closing up the nostrils. In such a case have a small cap of cotton
to fit the head. Wring this out of cold water, and fit it on the
child's head. Put on over it a rather larger and thicker cap of the
same material. Often the nostrils will open in two or three seconds,
and the cold will speedily be cured, if no more be wrong. Observe that
the child be warm during this treatment. If the case is obstinate,
secure good medical aid, for constitutional weakness, or even some
deformity of the nostrils, may be present as cause, where the trouble
exists from birth.

For adults similarly affected, a towel wrung out of cold water and
wrapped round the head, with another dry one above, will answer the
purpose.

For severe cases, pack the feet and legs in hot fomentation for an
hour, and apply a cold towel as above. This last method should always
be pursued where the patient feels chilly. Cold in the head may often
be checked by use of dilute vinegar. See Nostrils.
