Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Colds and nasal congestion that you experience can be caused by several things, namely:
Viral / bacterial infection of the nose (rhinitis)
Viral / bacterial infection of the sinuses (sinusitis)
Nasal irritation by smoke, fragrances such as perfume (vasomotor rhinitis)
Foreign object inside the nose
Mass on the nose, such as polyps
The bleeding that occurs, can be a result of your cold, which is blowing your nose too hard, causing a rupture of the nasal blood vessels.
In addition, the bleeding from the nose that you experience can be caused by several other things, namely:
Rupture of blood vessels due to excessive pressure on the nose: apart from those mentioned above which is blowing your nose too hard, this can happen to sneezing too tightly
Rupture of a blood vessel due to injury, for example picking the nose too tightly, the air is dry and cold
High blood pressure
Use of blood thinners
Blood clotting disorders
Nasal tumor / cancer
For that, determine the cause of your complaint by consulting further with an ENT doctor. The doctor will further explore your complaint and will perform blood pressure checks and examination of your nose. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, blood clotting profile checks, biopsy if there is a period. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Avoid contracting a bacterial / viral infection by using a mask when someone has the flu around you, and vice versa, you must wear a mask when experiencing flu symptoms so that it is not transmitted
Eat nutritious food, multiply fruits and vegetables to increase immunity
Drink about 2 liters of water per day
Avoid blowing your nose too hard
Don't scratch your nose
Get enough rest, limit strenuous activities
Avoid exposure to ingredients that you are allergic to if you have a cold due to allergies
Avoid consumption of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
