What is meant with Colombian cold?

Cocaine use can inflame your nasal mucosa and cause the nasal mucosa to produce extra mucus. Users then get a strong runny nose. This is also known as the ‘Colombian cold’. Inflamed mucosa can be very painful and annoying and there is also a risk of permanent damage. When you start snorting cocaine, it is therefore important that you clean your nose well regularly to ensure that you do not get this form of cold and that your use is as safe as possible.
