Causes And Ways To Deal With Recurring Rhinitis?
Hello, can I ask for a prescription for rhinitis? So I can buy myself at the pharmacy. I usually go to the clinic, but I always forget to ask for the prescription name of the medicine directly to the doctor. Is it safe if I often take rhinitis medication? Then is there a natural recipe that I can use? And is it true, if people who are rarely exposed to sunlight can reduce endurance? Is this a factor of rhinitis?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should ask clearly when seeing your doctor, what rhinitis you are experiencing. Rhinitis can be caused by infections, for example viral infections (most often), can also be caused by bacterial or fungal infections. Rhinitis can also be caused by allergies, for example due to dust mites, flower pollen, animal dandruff, mold spores, etc., and can also be caused by non-allergic rhinitis (or called vasomotor rhinis), for example due to exposure to certain sharp odors, exposure to air that is cold and dry, exposure to smoke / pollution, changes in weather, certain medicines or foods, and so on.
Not all rhinitis requires treatment. The more important thing for you to consider is the cause of your rhinitis. If you have been experiencing rhinitis due to infection, then the more action you need to take is to avoid contact with people who are experiencing cough / colds and to wash your hands frequently. If what you have been experiencing is allergic rhinitis or vasomotor rhinitis, then the more important thing you do is look for the trigger and avoid it.
The remedy for rhinitis itself is only a symptomatic drug or medication to relieve symptoms only (unless your rhinitis is caused by a bacterial or fungal infection). Most of these medicines are prescription drugs so you really can't buy them yourself without checking with your doctor first. We recommend that you do an examination to the ENT doctor to find out more clearly the cause of your rhinitis and get treatment that is appropriate for you.
Rare exposure to the sun is unlikely to directly cause your rhinitis, but you should know that your body must get daily sun exposure even if only briefly. Sun exposure is very important because the human body will produce vitamin D when the skin is exposed to sunlight. If you are not exposed to sunlight at all every day, then your body can experience vitamin D deficiency. If indeed you live in a place with little sun exposure, then you are encouraged to consume vitamin D supplements to meet your daily vitamin D needs.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
