Colds, Pain In The Nose And Left Eye, And The Throat Feels Lumpy
So, it’s been 3 days I have a cold only on the left nose and my left eye is also sick / achy. Plus my throat feels blocked. Please advise and guide me
Thank you for the question.
Colds, pain in the nose and left eye, and lumps in the throat can refer to a variety of conditions, for example:
Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses)
Nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from the nasal mucosa)
Pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat)
Other factors, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, trigeminal neuralgia, entry of foreign matter into the nose or throat, migraine, nasopharyngeal cancer, and so on
Some of the conditions above can be triggered by infection, including viral infections (for example Corona virus) or bacteria. Not only infection, other factors such as allergies, irritation, immune disorders, to the sensitivity of certain drugs can aggravate this complaint.
Our advice, you do not panic. As long as there is no fever for more than 3 days, shortness, or other more severe complaints, your condition seems to be treated first independently by:
Take paracetamol so that the pain and aches you experience subside
Get plenty of rest, drink warm water, and eat fruits rich in vitamin C
Do not contact with cold, smoke, dust, pollution, and other things that can trigger inflammation in the nose and throat
Do not smoke
Discipline maintain personal hygiene and the environment
Exercise and get enough rest every day
If until a long time your complaint does not subside, or if other complaints appear more severe as we alluded to before, do not hesitate to check with your doctor, yes. The doctor will be able to immediately give you medicine, conduct additional examinations (such as rhinoscopy, x-rays , blood test), even referring you to the ENT doctor or internal medicine.
Hope this helps ...
