Hello Novita, thank you for the question.
Normally, the nose and respiratory tract have a defense system against foreign objects, namely by removing mucus which functions to expel bacteria and other foreign objects, which can appear in the form of phlegm, mucus, etc. However, this mucus production can also become excessive, depending on what triggers this, including:
Allergy to certain substances, such as animal hair, dead skin of animals, dust, waste materials in the workplace such as sawdust and latex, mites, and pollen. These materials can cause inflammatory conditions in the nose and cause the production of mucus to increase and become thinner. The environment changes the weather to a sudden coldness. Acute / chronic respiratory infections, can also be in the form of viral infections such as flu / colds Hormonal disorders use of drugs such as anti-inflammatory drugs, drugs to treat heart problems, anti-hypertensive drugs, as well as decongestants that are sprayed into the nose. See your doctor to confirm this. Emotional or physical stress. Food that is too cold or too spicy and too rich with spices / too sharp My advice, for now, try to see an ENT specialist to get the right treatment. This needs to be done regularly to prevent the complaints you are experiencing from reappearing. In addition, consumption of warm drinks can also help reduce these complaints, also by inhaling hot water vapor, using a mask when driving openly or on foot, or when working in dusty areas with lots of residual materials. If this condition does not improve, or is getting worse, such as causing severe headaches, interfering with activities and causing shortness of breath, you should immediately see a doctor for treatment.
