Causes Of Right Nasal Congestion?
I want to ask, my nose suddenly clogged to the right even though I didn’t have a cold, the first 3 days since I blocked the right nostril blot and runny blood. Because the blockage is very disturbing I went to a general practitioner, and according to him there was a polyp in my nose, then I was given medicine to ease it a little. But after the medicine was drunk the nose was still clogged, I immediately went to the ENT paramedic, according to him I was affected by hypertrophy and if I wanted to recover I had to have surgery. From the ENT enchantment I was given cold medicine and vitamins, 2 days I drank my nose was relieved not clogged again, but on the right nose still feels like something is lumpy and not really plong like the left nose. Do I still need to check directly to the ENT doctor to make sure my nose is normal or not? Thank you…

Nasal congestion is likely there are many causes. If this complaint appears accompanied by excessive runny nose and nosebleeds (runny nose), the following is likely to occur:
Allergic and non-allergic rhinitis (can be due to viral infections, bacterial infections, disorders of blood vessels around the nose, the influence of drugs, disorders of immunity)
Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses), often occurs associated with infection or blockage of the sinus cavity due to polyps, deviation of the nasal septum, even malignancy
Nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from the mucous layer in the nasal cavity that swell to form lumps due to chronic inflammation)
Enlarged Konka (swollen mucous membranes that multiply in the nasal cavity, can be due to sinusitis, irritation, also allergic to the nasal cavity
Others, for example the entry of foreign objects into the nasal cavity, cancer around the nasal cavity, impaired immunity, and so on
It is better if your condition is checked directly with the experts, namely doctors or ENT specialists. That way, of course the doctor can carry out in-depth physical examination, or also conduct supporting tests, such as rhinoscopy, nasal endoscopy, x-ray, CT scan, biopsy, and so on. The best treatment can be decided by the doctor after the diagnosis of the cause of your complaint is well established. Often, this treatment is done by administering drugs, nasal cavity irrigation, surgery, and so on.
At this time, you should resolve your complaint first with the following steps:
Keep yourself away from exposure to substances that are prone to trigger inflammation in the nasal cavity, for example dust, dry air, cold temperatures, smoke, pollution, and so on
Use a mask when activities in a less friendly environment
Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke too
Do not pry nose excessively
Don't use the air conditioner or the fan is too cold
Use an air humidifier so that the humidity in the air in your residence is more awake
Expand eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Drink more warm water, you can also add honey or ginger
Maintain endurance by extending rest and exercise routine
Do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
