Causes Prolonged Nasal Discharge In Children?
Good Morning, I want to ask, it’s been almost 4 months, my child Azni Snot keeps coming out, sorry … Even though I went to the Pediatrician 3X General Practitioner 2X
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you should try to explain first, whether the discharge of snot is accompanied by other symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion, fever, cough, itchy nose, etc.? Is the snot released clear and runny, or greenish or thick yellowish? Does snot discharge occur at any time or only at certain times?
Snot discharge or what is called rhinorrhea can be caused by several possibilities, including:
colds allergic rhinitis vasomotor sinusitis rhinitis presence of foreign bodies in the nose air around that is too cold and dry brain fluid leakage other disorders of the nasal cavity, for example nasal polyps, septal deviation, cysts or tumors in the nose, etc. You can try to bring your child to the ENT doctor so that you can further examine the inside of your child's nose and see if there are certain abnormalities in the nasal cavity. Meanwhile, try to get rid of the possibility of colds that occur due to allergies or irritation to the nose, for example, just clean the house from dust and animal dander and dander, avoid smoking around children, avoid odors that are too strong around children, avoid exposure to pollution air around the child. You can also install air purifiers (air purifiers) and air humidifiers (humidifiers) in a child's bedroom. Avoid giving medication alone without consulting a doctor first.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
