No more gigantic snot balls

No really. Apparently that's the wrong way to deal with a cold.  This article says that blowing your nose when you have a cold just shoots snot into your sinuses and increases the chance of secondary infections.  Use decongestants and blow one nostril at a time is the advice given.

I have no idea if this is medically compelling, but with the number of runny noses and sinus infections rolling through our house, I am willing to try anything.
