When flu decided to attack me, it usually will get worst. Probably because I have the infamous 'resdung' or sinusitis in english that runs in the family. My dad has it so indeed I got it from him. Our sinusitis are equally bad. The complications that I have to face when I got the sinusitis are the normal heavy teary eyes (almost like crying), heavy headed and blocked nose. The only thing I can do is to take flu medication and sometimes I overdose so that it works a lot faster. Never cross my mind that I would get my sinusitis treated traditionally, I don't know but maybe I'm a little sceptic about the candle treatment. What I heard from friends that had tried the candle treatment, sebums (those white little things that came off if nose strip is applied) are actually food for the resdung worms. When the smoke of the candle hits the face, sebum will come out from the pores and it will help to reduce resdung. Seriously, resdung is actually worms that live in the nose area?! I've read a few articles on malay traditional treatment for resdung and the practitioners describe resdung as tiny maggot-like worms. That I cannot believe, I'm sorry.
So here I am, in my room, constantly sneezing and wiping off my nose, teary eyes, typing and feeling utterly uncomfortable. I have bad headache even. I'll probably just get some rest and sleep without switching on the fan, that is.
Does some of you have sinusitis/ resdung as well? Tried the candle treatment before? Do you believe that resdung is actually real worms? What are your treatment routine when it comes to resdung?
thank God for tissue and countless of hot coffee for being there for me...
Until next post,
stay healthy and au revoir!
