Causes And Ways To Overcome The Discharge Of Yellow Fluid From The Left Nose?
Good evening, doctor. Permission to ask, I have a complaint that my left nose has a sudden yellow discharge when I don’t have a cold and don’t have a headache. Then if you sleep on your side to the right, it feels like the liquid will come out. Thank you🙏
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A sudden yellow discharge from one side of the nose may indicate that you have chronic sinusitis, which is an inflammation of the sinuses that occurs prolonged or recurs very often. Sinus itself is an air-filled cavity that is located behind the forehead, nasal cavity, and cheeks. Inflammation in the sinuses can occur if the connecting channel with nasal cavity is blocked, for example due to inflammation, foreign bodies, septum deviation, to benign or malignant tumors. Not only yellow fluid comes out of the nose, chronic sinusitis can also cause sufferers to experience olfactory disorders, taste disorders, nasal sounds, and bad breath. Not infrequently, fluid from the nose can also be swallowed up the throat (post nasal drip) and makes the throat feel uncomfortable. In contrast to acute sinusitis, symptoms of inflammation in chronic sinusitis, such as fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, dizziness, headache, muscle and joint pain, or others often do not appear typical, so often overlooked by sufferers.
In addition to chronic sinusitis, other conditions, such as allergic rhinitis, non-allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, nasopharyngeal carcinomas, to immune disorders such as cystic fibrosis can also cause complaints similar to those you experience today. Therefore, in order to establish a diagnosis, you better check yourself to the doctor or ENT specialist. If necessary, your doctor can direct you to undergo additional examinations, for example X-ray, rhinoscopy, endoscopy, laboratory, and so on.
At this time, what you should do is:
Do not pry excessive nose, especially with dirty hands
Clean the nasal fluid that comes out with a clean tissue
Do not smoke
Keep yourself away from substances that are vulnerable to make your airway allergic, such as dust, mites, smoke, animal hair, cold
Wear a mask when active
Don't cough, sneeze or spit carelessly
Do not carelessly take medication if not prescribed directly by a doctor
Hope this helps ...
