Despite the fact that many viruses can cause a cold, rhinoviruses are the most common culprits. When someone is sick, they cough, sneeze, or speak, which allows the cold virus to enter their body. Getting a cold can also be caught by touching contaminated objects and surfaces, then touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
In most cases, the common cold starts two to three days after infection, and the symptoms can last anywhere from two to 10 days. There may be a common cold if you suffer from symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, coughing, watery eyes, and fever.
Applying Marma Balm over the nose and the forehead can provide instant relief from these symptoms. The symptoms of the common cold last for about 3 to 4 days after which they get relieved spontaneously. Though Marma Balm does not directly attack the virus or cure the infection, it can provide relief from the discomforting symptoms as the disease runs its course. It provides relief from a headache by producing soothing and cooling effects. It also produces a local anti-inflammatory action and reduces the congestion in the nose.
