Effects Of Rhinitis On The Skin Around The Nose?
Does rhinitis have an effect on the skin around the nose?
Thank you for the question.
Rhinitis occurs when the nasal cavity is inflamed, it can be due to allergies, abnormalities of blood vessels and nerve fibers around the nose, side effects of drugs, viral or bacterial infections, seasonal changes, and many other factors. Clinically, sufferers of rhinitis often complain of nasal congestion, runny, itchy, accompanied by other complaints, such as sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, mucus swallowed to the throat, olfactory disorders, taste disturbances, taste disorders, dizziness, pain around the head and face, and etcetera.
Rhinitis alone is actually not directly related to changes in the skin around the nose. It's just that, itching in the nose due to rhinitis, especially those caused by allergies (allergic rhinitis), it often makes sufferers rub excessively the area of his nose, resulting in the skin around the nose becoming reddened, blackened, and even can arise sores. These skin changes are also associated with a buildup of mucus around the nose of a sufferer of rhinitis. Frequently, this condition in the medical realm is termed allergic salute.
Is this skin change meant? If yes, then by overcoming the rhinitis, this complaint should be improved by itself. You can consult further with your doctor or ENT doctor regarding this matter ...
