Hi Nihayati, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Nasal polyps are the growth of tissue in the nasal airways, large polyps can clog the nasal passages and cause symptoms of nasal congestion, runny nose, difficulty breathing, and disturbances in the sense of smell. However, the condition you are experiencing may also be caused by other things, namely:
Chronic sinusitis Allergic rhinitis Nasal irritation due to exposure to dust or smoke Nasal tumors Presence of foreign bodies It is best to consult an ENT doctor, especially if your symptoms are accompanied by difficulty breathing, headache, fever. To find out the cause, the doctor will perform a physical examination, supporting examinations such as sinus x-rays, head CT scan.
Some things you can do at home
Inhaling hot water vapor Warm compresses on the nose Sleeping half-sitting Inhaling balm, inhaler or wind oil Eat spicy food Drink lots of warm water Avoid cold air or cold drinks Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
