Causes And Overcomes A Blocked Throat?
Hello Doctor !!!
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The throat extends from behind the nasal cavity (nasopharynx), behind the oral cavity (oropharynx), to the back of the larynx (laryngopharynx). Colds accompanied by a feeling of congestion in the throat can occur due to several factors, including:
Nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from the nasal mucosa, which generally have stalks - these stalks can be long enough to block the throat) Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) The nose has entered a foreign body Rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa), for example due to allergies or infections Cavity cancer nose or throat Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils), etc. Do you have any other complaints, for example, smell a bad smell, smell disturbances, shortness of breath, etc.?
It is necessary to do a thorough evaluation of your condition, not only from a physical examination, but also from further tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, rhinoscopy, laryngoscopy, and so on. Therefore, you should check with an ENT specialist (ear nose throat) so that proper treatment is carried out. The treatment will be adjusted to the underlying cause of your complaint, including medication, to surgery.
In the meantime, you can do some of the tips below as initial handling:
Do not stay too long in a cold, dusty, and polluting environment Use a mask to prevent the entry of harmful foreign particles into the airways. Adequate rest Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin C Do not smoke Do not use excessive decongestants without a doctor's prescription Drink lots of warm water Hope it helps yes ..
