Walaikumsalam wr wb., good night Abu Bakr.
Sneezing is a defense mechanism of the respiratory system against the presence of viral particles, bacteria, or allergens (such as dust, smoke, strong smells, cold air, etc.). In addition to sneezing, the other respiratory system defense is the secretion / production of mucus (mucus) which is often referred to as snot. You don't need to worry if the sneezing you experience is accompanied by mucus, because as mentioned above, snot is a respiratory defense mechanism against viral particles, bacteria, or allergens.
Sneezing with runny nose can be caused by:
Influenza infection (flu) allergic rhinitis, which is inflammation of the nasal mucosa due to allergic conditions. The trigger for this condition is exposure to cold weather, dust, smoke, animal dander, flower pollen, etc. The dominant symptom is sneezing that appears only at certain times (eg in the morning when the weather is cold, or when outside the house when exposed to dust) accompanied by watery and colorless mucus. bacterial infection If the complaint does not improve, it is recommended that you consult a doctor for further treatment. If necessary, the doctor will perform a blood test or skin examination to determine the substance that causes allergies. In the meantime, some suggestions that you can do include:
get enough rest avoid exposure to substances that you suspect cause complaints to appear more often eat nutritious food regularly do exercise cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or handkerchief every time you sneeze That's all, hope it helps.
