We love a good TikTok hack that can change your life, but if you're planning to attempt the new trend of putting garlic in your nose to clear out your sinuses then you might want to hold off according to medical experts.
The trend has been viral for the past few weeks and involves cutting up a clove of garlic and shoving two pieces into your nostrils for 30 minutes. Once you pull the garlic out, your sinuses clear up and a TON of snot comes out of your nose; however, this can actually irritate your nasal passages.
According to experts, the only reason that the garlic is casing runny noses is that it's irritating your nasal passages and make it worse for you when you actually have a runny nose when you're sick.
Thrusting the cloves up your nostrils can also cause trauma to the lining of your nose or even an infection! You might want to pass on this trend and let everyone else has messed-up noses!
