Should I blow my nose a lot and force it when I'm cold?

 

No. Whenever our nose is congested, we must replace the frequent habit of blowing the nose strongly for nasal washing with high volume saline.

This should be done because the act of blowing the nose frequently impairs the functioning of the nasal vibrissae, decreasing the transport and drainage of the secretions. Therefore try using physiological saline.
