Causes And Treatment Of Stomach Ulcers And Nasal Discharge?
Hello doctor, I have an ulcer, where have I been treated yet, it has not healed, then a lot of phlegm and from the nose for a long time. How about that, please explain
Thank you for the question.
Heartburn (dyspepsia), typically will cause you to experience pain, bloating, tightness, lumps, nausea, and a variety of other discomfort that appears dominant in the gut. Heartburn alone should not cause you to experience runny nose. If you experience this complaint, it is possible that in addition to heartburn, you also have rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity), which can be triggered by allergies, irritations, vascular disorders, viral or bacterial infections, benign or malignant tumors, nasal septum deviation, up to impaired immunity. Apart from rhinitis, slimy nose may also be caused by sinusitis, or inflammation of the sinus cavity.
Overcoming heartburn and inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses can be done with different treatments. If your condition is mild, frequent administration of drugs, such as stomach acid neutralizing drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, decongestants, anti-allergies, antibiotics, and so on can make your complaints improve. But of course, further evaluation is needed to identify the exact cause of these two conditions so that complaints do not always recur and recur. Therefore, it is best to check with yourself directly to a doctor, a specialist in internal medicine, or an ENT specialist so that your condition is handled correctly.
In the meantime, the initial handling steps you should take are:
Eat more regularly, a little but often
Reduce foods that trigger worsening heartburn, for example chili, sauce, sour fruit, fried foods, coconut milk, caffeine, soda, and other gassed foods
Do not eat near bedtime
Avoid exposure to substances that might trigger allergies, for example cold, dust, animal dander, pollen
Use a mask
Always maintain personal hygiene and the environment around you
Expand exercise, adequate rest, and eat more fruits rich in vitamin C so that the immune system is maintained properly
Do not smoke
Do not carelessly take medicine without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
