Causes Prolonged Colds?
Hi, I’m a 23-year-old woman, it’s been a year since I have a cold but not the flu (influenza). Every time I wake up from sleep I immediately sneeze, runny nose, itchy nose, redness, and runny nose out of ordinary white color. And lately, when I drink milk, drink ice, eat spicy food, my runny nose immediately relapses, it’s weird that I become parno myself if I want to eat something, because the cold is rather annoying. Initially I only avoided drinking ice, but now why do I have so many foods to avoid, what kind of rhinitis is this? Do I have to see an ENT doctor immediately? and whether rhinitis can affect and reduce productivity? Because since I was hit with it my quality of life has declined. Thanks.
Hello Khoiriya, Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Rhinitis itself is inflammation / irritation of the inner nose due to a certain condition. Some of the symptoms that will arise are colds, sneezing, sneezing, nasal congestion, even in severe symptoms that will greatly disrupt the sufferer's daily life. There are many causes of rhintis which also make various types of rhintis.
Some types of rhinitis themselves include:
Allergic Rhinitis. Rhintis non-allergic. Vasomotor rhinitis. Rhinitis infection. if the infection is due to a runny nose virus, if the bacteria turn greenish yellow. Medicinal rhinitis mentosa. - due to long-term use of certain drugs. Some types of rhinitis above are very difficult to distinguish because the symptoms are almost similar. Some other diseases such as common cold, influenza, sinusitis and even have symptoms of constant blocked or runny nose. Responding to complaints that you submit regarding complaints of colds, nasal congestion that you often experience and depending on certain circumstances the possibility of allergic rhinitis, and vasomotor rhinitis is greater than other types.
For that you need to do now is to avoid several factors that can cause complaints that you experience. Apart from this you can take antihistamine-class drugs to reduce your symptoms. If you feel very disturbed by your complaint, you can consult a ENT doctor.
So many of my answers hopefully help, thank you very much :)
