Steam/water vapor: The burning sensation is due to inflammation of the nasal mucosa. Doing steam or water vapor inhalation will provide some relief. A cold will pass in a couple of days. You may take some acetaminophen/Tylenol for relief of pain and fever. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.
