Dry nose is usually caused by dry weather, but can also be allergies, decongestant medications or antihistamine medications. Increase your fluid intake to hydrate your body so that it can produce mucous. Drink at least six 8 ounce glasses a day of water, juice or tea.

Too often when people think of someone being in a hospital, they focus solely on the physical issues: mending bones, fighting diseases, rebuilding muscle. Of course we all know that being a patient or having a loved one in the hospital can be a very difficult time. However we believe the key to health is to care for the whole person – spiritually and emotionally – offering comfort and assistance to patients and family members during their stay in our facilities. This holistic approach is vital to ensuring that patients and their families that come to Baptist Health not only find physical healing, but spiritual and emotional peace as well.
