Hello doc, I want to ask, I have had a cold for a few days, my nose is blocked and itchy, so I keep sneezing and coughing a little, what is the cause, huh, and how do I deal with it? thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Akbar,


Thank you for the question.

Runny, stuffy, itchy, sneezing, and slight coughing nose most often indicate that you are allergic, for example to cold, pollen, animal hair, dust mites, or various other substances. This allergy is closely related to genetic and environmental factors. Often, with proper treatment, allergy symptoms will improve in a short time.


In addition to allergies, your complaints can also be aggravated by other conditions, such as viral or bacterial infections, irritation, foreign body entry, anatomic disorders in the nasal cavity, sensitivity to certain drugs, even benign or malignant tumors around the airways (such as polyps or cancer).


To improve, we suggest you do it first:

Use a mask
Irrigation your nose, by spraying NaCl liquid into each nasal cavity using a syringe that has been removed by the needle
Diligently shower with warm water, and wash your hands with soap
Do not hold the face, except with washed hands
Do not carelessly exchange personal belongings with others
Do not leave the house, unless urgent
Keep your distance from other people around you
Drink plenty of warm water, eat lots of fruits rich in vitamin C too
Do not smoke
Stay away from dust, cold, pollution, smoke, and other things that are prone to trigger coughs, colds, and sneezing

If for a long time your complaint does not subside, or if you have a high fever, shortness of breath, and have had contact with sufferers / suspects of COVID-19, do not hesitate to consult yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor so that further treatment according to the cause yes. .


I hope this helps.
