I am Ivan 19 years old, my nose has always been blocked and then I have been around for more than a year like a cold but I have no fever or anything, I have been a specialist but still can’t go away, why?

1 Answer:

Hi Ivan,

Nasal congestion like what you experience is generally caused by a cold or flu, where in this condition there is inflammation and swelling of the mucosal tissue so that the nose becomes blocked. However, please note that nasal congestion can also be triggered by other medical problems such as:

Allergic rhinitis Sinusitis nasal septal deviation (crooked nasal bones) Nasal polyps Thyroid gland disorders Nasal tumors
Given that the causes of nasal congestion can vary, to be able to determine the right solution for you, of course, you must first ascertain the cause, because different causes will require different treatments. Because this condition has been going on for up to 1 year, you should go back to consult with an ENT specialist so that the cause can be investigated further. If needed, the doctor can recommend supporting tests such as a CT scan or endoscopy to analyze the cause further, so that appropriate treatment according to the basic condition can be given to you.

In the meantime, to reduce the complaints that arise, you are advised to consume lots of water at least 2 liters a day. Warm steam inhalation can also be used to help reduce nasal congestion. Getting plenty of rest and consuming nutritious foods is also important to do in order to maintain the body's resistance from infections that may arise.
