Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Runny nose, cough with phlegm, accompanied by nasal sounds do not always indicate a dangerous condition. However, if these various complaints have persisted for more than 3 days, you should remain vigilant and consult a doctor, ENT specialist, or an internal medicine specialist so that they are given the best treatment.
Some of the conditions that often cause complaints as you experience are:
Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the sinus and nasal cavities) Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat) Allergies, often triggered by dust, cold Nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from the mucosal lining of the nasal cavity) ARI (acute respiratory tract infection) or other viral and bacterial infections , etc. With a careful examination, or also assisted by several supporting tests, such as X-rays, laboratory tests, ultrasound, endoscopy, and so on, doctors can generally give you the right treatment. However, in addition to undergoing doctor's treatment, so that healing can run optimally, you should also undertake the following efforts:
Use a mask covering the mouth and nose so as not to enter substances that are harmful to the airways Drink more warm water Avoid smoking habits Do not indiscriminately consume cold cough medicines Eat fruits and vegetables that contain lots of vitamin C Reduce consumption of oily, fatty foods Not too much screaming- shouted. Get enough rest. Stay away from the cigarettes and the smoke. Hope this helps.
