Hello. I am 18 years old almost every day from 3 am to 6 am I always have a cold and nasal congestion. Sometimes also feel nerve pain and headaches whether these symptoms are symptoms of chronic diseases that need special treatment? Thanks.
Hello, Milasa. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of runny and stuffy nose in the morning accompanied by headaches can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa and paranasal sinuses, main symptoms: thick snot, thick postnasal drip, cough; accompanying symptoms: facial pain, headache, swelling around the eyes, tooth pain, sore throat, and fever)
Allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa caused by an allergic reaction to an allergenic trigger so that the nose is runny, stuffy, sneezing which is heavy especially in the morning)
Medical rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa due to excessive use of nasal drops or vasoconstrictor nasal sprays for long periods of time causing nasal congestion)
We advise you to check directly with a doctor or ENT specialist so that the disease causing the complaint can be identified through history taking, physical examination, and supporting examination (if necessary). Your doctor may prescribe nasal congestion with hypo-allergies or antibiotics if an indication is found.
As a recommendation at home, you can do the following simple steps:
Wash the nose with salt water
Wash hands with soap before eating and drinking
Avoid exposure to allergenic ingredients, especially if you have a history of allergies
Consumption of balanced nutritious food regularly
