Questions about catarrh

I'm used to the normal spectrum (clear-white-yellow-green), but pink? Also gaudy orange? And where's it all coming from? Buckets and buckets of the stuff!
What's happening up there in my nasal passages? Is this anything to do with the glorious sinus headaches I'm having as well?

Has my cold turned...sinister?

Infection.
Get thee to a General Practitioner!

right, what you want to do
is have a very very hot shower so the steam opens all the relevant passages then have a piece of hot butttered toast with 2-3 cloves of garlice mashed onto it

clears you out in no time


and youwere right, it was teeth andt he door handle not skin tags,but possibly boils too at a push

Does it work on noses, too, Suze?

Oh dear Tigana. I don't want antibiotics - I'd rather take Suzywong's galric! (Though I think I'd faint if I had such a hot shower.)

iirc dh was given a evil nasal spray when his nose starting producing similar exudate <<pulls mildly disgusted face>>
