  • I think it would be fine. If your nose is stuffed or you are achey it would probably help a lot. just don't take any meds that would make your drowsy, you don't want to fall asleep in teh sauna.

  • Yeah, it would be like going inside of a humidifier. Except without the extra medicine you can put in them. I am sure it will help with stiff muscles/joints and it will help to open your nasal passages. It may work better then any cold medicine you have taken.
