I am miserable and can't breathe through my nose or even smell. Mrs. M. G. Massachusetts Dear Mrs. G.: During bouts of allergy, the mucous membrane which lines the nose becomes swollen and congested and interferes with normal breathing. Most nose drops contain ephcdrine or some derivitive of ephedrine, which shrinks the mucous membrane so that breathing will be easier. Unfortunately relief is temporary, because the membrane soon returns to its previous state and often becomes more congested. This condition is a progressive one, especially in allergies. More and more nose drops become necessary to shrink the membrane in order to bring relief. Before long, the dependence on the nose drops becomes so severe that patients think they simply cannot do without them. Your, loss of smell is probably caused by the allergy, but infection of the sinuses, the nose drops or a combination of all three. Breaking the nose drop habit is difficult and demands will power, but it is imperative. Often the substitution of a milder nose drop, one that does not contain ephedrine, will, in conjunction with an antihistamine, break this addiction to nose drops. Is This Serious? Whenever I am under stress my heart begins to "run away." If I take my pulse I can hardly count it. Does tliis sound serious? P.J.P. Ohio Dear P. J. P.: In your question you recognize that stress and anxiety make your heart beat faster. Increase of the heart rate can be caused by many situations. Emotional stress, Physical activity, overindulgence in food and drink or actual physical illness may be responsible. Taking one's own pulse is, in itself, an indication of some kind of "heart anxiety" and, strangely, tends to make the rate increase. The likelihood is that there is no physical importance to your condition. Yet it is wise to be relieved of your anxiety by the health checkup you have probably been putting off because of your fears. Spare yourself further concern by finding out that you probably are in excellent health and that all you need is that assurance. Strange Appearance At Birth Three of my four children were born with their heads out of shape. After a few weeks, their heads became normal. Can this affect them in later life? Mrs. R. R. West Virginia Dear Mrs. R. R.: You need not be concerned that this temporary malformation will leave any permanent change. The fact that the babies' heads returned to normal so quickly should relieve your anxiety. By now, you know that their physical and emotional growth is normal. When a baby is born, the bones of the skull are still pliable and not completely calcified. Pressure made on the head during the end of pregnancy and during delivery sometimes molds these soft bones out of shape. There are wide spaces between the bones in.the skull which expand easily as the cluld's brain grows. This is one of nature's additional safeguards during the in- fanf s development. These columns are designed to relieve your fears about health through a better understanding of your mind and body. All the hopeful new advances In medicine reported here are known to doctors everywhere. Your Individual medical problems should be handled by your own doctor. He knows you best.

The panacea is as simple as the cause: alter the routine. Almost any modification is effective in reducing boredom — doing something else for a while, doing the same thing differently, slowing or increasing the pace, taking a coffee break, etc. Boredom is simply mental weariness produced by monotony; and monotony hates change. Do blondes age faster than brunettes? Answer: Dr. John K n o x, Houston skin specialist, s a id that many blondes show aging earlier than brunettes. The reason: chronic exposure to sunshine can cause dry, wrinkled and discolored skin that looks like premature aging. Dark skin is better protected by the dark pigment (melanin) which absorbs ultraviolet and sunburn rays. Young people who want suntan should know that they may pay its price in later years when they have greater need to look their best. IB there a sure cure (or boredom? Answer: Yes, and a very simple one: change! Boredom arises when we become tired of doing (© 1863, King Features. Synd., Inc.) Are children easy to hypnotize? Answer: Very young children are often difficult to hypnotize because they are unable to concentrate on the hypnotist's instructions and suggestions, at least no long enough to induce hypnosis. Their unfamlltarity with the language is another stumbling block; many fall to understand the suggestions made by the hypnotist, and others are distracted by the unusual attention they are receiving. This is also true of feebleminded adults.
