Causes Of Nasal Polyps?
I am Anisa, 29 years old. NSome months I often get sick around the nose to the tip of my eyebrows after I saw that in my right nose there was a fairly large lump, I just let it go and now it appears again in the left nostril. Is it a polyp, and what should I avoid so that it does not appear again, because it is quite irritating to the cheek sometimes when it is pressed it hurts.
Thank you for the question.
Nasal polyps are growths of flesh inside the nose that are soft. Nasal polyps can grow in the nasal cavity or in the sinuses. Nasal polyps come in various sizes. The symptoms also depend on the size of the polyp. Symptoms will appear in large nasal polyps:
runny or stuffy nose can not smell headache sneeze pain on face snoring Until now the cause of nasal polyps is still not known with certainty. However, several things have been found to increase the risk of developing nasal polyps:
allergic asthma sensitive to aspirin kitsa fibrosis infection family history with nasal polyps The growth of flesh in the nasal cavity is not only caused by nasal polyps. Other causes:
congenital abnormalities rhinosinusitis tumor, chronic abscess or collection of pus The advice I can give is to maintain the health of the nose by:
often wash your hands with soap consuming vegetables and fruit using a mask in dusty and smoky areas do not smoke to maintain dental health because dental infections can cause infections in the sinuses, especially teeth in the upper jaw, adequate rest If you are an allergic sufferer, then to prevent nasal polyps You should avoid allergic substances such as dust, smoke, pollen, too cold air, and animal dander. The use of masks is recommended for allergic patients when traveling. So the cause of growing flesh in your nose must be ascertained first to prevent it from growing back. Consult an ENT specialist for this.
Hopefully my explanation answers the question.
