Catarrh is an excessive build-up of thick phlegm or mucus in an airway or cavity of the body.
It is usually found in the sinuses (air-filled cavities in the bones of the face that drain into the nose).
It can lead to the following:
:: A blocked and stuffy runny nose or mucus that runs down the back of your throat.
:: An irritating, persistent cough caused by excess mucus at the back of your throat.
:: A headache, facial pain caused by a blocked nose and blocked sinuses.
:: Loss of smell and taste

First Aid Tips
** Some cases of catarrh do not require treatment because it often disappears within a few days after your body has fought off the infection.
AVOID THESE:
:: Dusty environments
:: Cold drinks
EMBRACE THESE:
:: Go for warm drinks.
:: Take natural fruits like oranges, lime, apple, other fruits rich in vitamin C.
:: Wear warm clothing
