Self Care Advice

There are things you can try at home to relieve symptoms, such as:

  • Avoiding things that trigger symptoms, such as allergens or smoky places
  • Taking sips of cold water when they feel the need to clear the throat – constantly clearing the throat may make things worse
  • Using a saline nasal rinse several times a day – these can be bought in-pharmacy or made at home with half a teaspoon of salt in a pint of boiled water that’s been left to cool
  • Avoiding warm, dry atmospheres, such as places with air conditioning and car heating systems – placing plants or bowls of water in a room may help to keep the air humid
  • Staying well hydrated

FAQs

What is catarrh?

Catarrh is a build-up of mucus in an airway or cavity of the body.

What areas does catarrh affect?

Catarrh usually affects the back of the nose, the throat or the sinuses (air-filled cavities in the bones of the face).

How long does catarrh last?

Catarrh is often temporary, but some people experience it for months or years. This is known as chronic catarrh. Catarrh can be a nuisance and may be difficult to get rid of, but it's not harmful and there are treatments available.

When should I go and see a GP about catarrh?

It is advised to go and see a GP if your catarrh persists and is becoming difficult to live with. The GP may want to rule out conditions that could be causing it, such as nasal polyps or allergies, by referring you to a specialist for tests.
