Can Allergic Rhinitis Increase To Nasal Polyps?
Assalamualaikum, would you like to ask whether allergic rhinitis can also increase to nasal polyps ?? thanks. 🙂
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Allergic rhinitis with nasal polyps is two different conditions although the symptoms are similar, where allergic rhinitis is inflammation that occurs in the nasal cavity due to allergies, and nasal polyps are conditions of tissue emergence in the nasal passages. So in nasal polyps there are certain lumps in the nose.
So far it is still unknown what causes nasal polyps, but among the factors that increase the risk are suffering from asthma, heredity, fungal infections, inflammation of blood vessels and allergies. So indeed in some cases, allergic rhinitis can indeed be a trigger for nasal polyps, but being a trigger, being a cause and complications are different things. In this case the point is not all those who have severe, chronic and untreated allergic rhinitis will end up with the appearance of nasal polyps.
But apart from that, what is important is that all diseases must be treated. Whether allergic rhinitis can lead to nasal polyps or not, clear rhinitis should be avoided as much as possible. And to handle it, our advice is that you should consult an ENT doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
