Colds Every Morning And Night.?
At night … I want to ask … my child is 8 years old. When I wake up in the morning before bed, my child always sneezes, my nose is clogged … at first I thought it was because of dust or a lack of clean environment … but my child is just like that even though I have moved to a cleaner and more comfortable place … Everytime I bring a doctor, I would say I have the flu and a cold medicine. Allergy medicine … Until I feel sorry, I continue to take medication for a long time … so I give nasal drops … Actually, what kind of illness does this child have? What is the effect of using prolonged nasal drops? Thank you before …

Sneezing and nasal congestion are symptoms that often occur and can be caused by several types of conditions or diseases, including:
Allergic rhinitis, is a condition where inflammation of the airway mucosa is caused by an allergic or hypersensitive process to exposure to particles, substances, weather, or certain foods. Viral infections, for example in influenza virus infections, can cause inflammation in the nose and respiratory tract. This condition is very common, especially if the immune system is not in a fit condition, for example when too tired, lack of rest, or in young children, where the body's immune system is not perfect. Bacterial infection, which can cause symptoms similar to bacterial infections, but is usually accompanied by mucus or greenish or yellowish mucus, and also fever in patients. Nasal polyps, a growth of tissue in the nasal cavity that can cause blockages in the airway, and can also stimulate the airway mucosa to produce mucus / mucus. To confirm the condition of your child, several examinations are needed, such as physical examination, including rhinoscopy examination (to see the condition of the nasal cavity), laboratory blood tests, allergy tests, etc. Therefore, if this condition has often recurred, and has not improved in a few days or even months or years, I recommend that you immediately consult your child to a pediatrician or ENT specialist, so that a complete examination and appropriate treatment can be carried out.
Some things you can do right now are:
Maintain the condition of the child's body in a fit condition, by ensuring the nutritional needs and fluids of children remain met, and with adequate rest Identify the possibility of triggers, which can be certain particles (dust, animal hair, wood dust, etc.), weather (cold, hot) , certain foods (eggs, fish, shrimp), and others. If the symptoms are always felt only at night and morning, then it is most likely an allergy that is triggered by cold weather. However, this needs to be confirmed further. Prevent and anticipate exposure to these triggers, such as using a mask on dust allergies, using a jacket on cold allergies, or avoiding certain foods or drinks. Long-term use of drugs can generally have negative effects, but in certain conditions or diseases, if needed, it is better to use. Therefore, it should only be used if, on the advice or recommendation of a doctor, taking into account that the benefits of the drug outweigh the negative effects.
So, hopefully you can help.
