does inhaling steam help with a cold?

helps me

Yes. It works for me, because it clears my sinuses, and helps me get all the bad stuff out of my sinuses. I've known of several opera singers who could barely talk, did some steam inhalation, and were able to perform normally. Will it make the cold go away any sooner? I dont' know, but it certainly, in my experience, relieves the symptoms.

it doesnt help with the virus clearance. only anti-viral can do that. the steam is just for symptomatic relief (to clear the airway) and I have heard the doctors advice patients to do that.

In theory I think so, because a cold virus lives in cold/dry climates, which is why your body attacks with heat (fever) and wetness (nose, etc..) Also when I have steamy stuff (hot cocoa, soup, etc..) then my nasal passages clear up for awhile, which may or may not be good for the cold but it is definitely good for the symptom!

Yeah, it helps with head colds. It opens up your sinisus. (Spelling's wrong,sorry) It will help you to breath.

Not sure.. But when i have a cold I love going into steam rooms, the steam and citrus smells really make me feel better and helps unblock airways =] So for me it does..
