can one inhale smelling salts while fasting to help relieve a headache?

الجواب حامداومصليا
If inhaling of smelling salt means something going beyond the throat then it would break one's Fast. If inhaling does not entail entering anything beyond one's throat then the Fast will not become invalid but it may still become Makrooh.
And Allah knows best.
