Meaning of Catarrh
Catarrh /kəˈtɑr/, or catarrhal inflammation, is a disorder of inflammation of the mucous membranes in one of the airways or cavities of the body. It can result in a thick exudate of mucus and white blood cells caused by the swelling of the mucous membranes in the head in response to an infection. It is a symptom usually associated with the common cold and chesty coughs, but can also be found in patients with infections of the adenoids, middle ear, sinus or tonsils. The phlegm produced by catarrh may either discharge or cause a blockage which may become chronic. - See link


Catarrh in Spanish is Rinorrea
Rinorrea (rhīno- gr. ‘nariz’ + rhoíā gr. ‘flujo’) es el flujo o emisión abundante de líquido por la nariz, generalmente debido a un aumento de la secreción de mucosidad nasal. - See link
