Flu Due To Allergies Or Due To Viruses
Good night doc, my left nose is runny clear liquid and accompanied by sneezing is only rather rare and not accompanied by fever ,, is this flu due to allergies or because of the virus Thank you in advance huh doc
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, should you explain in advance since when you have a cold and sneezing?
Common causes of colds and sneezing can be divided into 3:
Infection (can be a viral or bacterial infection, but a virus more often). If it is caused by an infection you will usually experience other symptoms such as fever, malaise, muscle and joint pain, dizziness and headaches
Allergy (can be due to allergies to dust mites, animal dandruff, flower or grass pollen, mold spores, etc.). When caused by allergies, usually you will experience other symptoms such as itching on the nose, red and itchy on the eyes, itching on the throat, feeling unwell.
Other causes (or called vasomotor rhinitis), for example due to weather changes, too cold and dry air, hormonal changes, food or drink, strong odors, etc. If it is caused by vasomotor rhinitis, usually you will only experience colds, sneezing, and nasal congestion, without any other symptoms.
You should try to find the trigger for the appearance of a cold and sneeze first. If indeed a cold and sneezing are triggered by certain things, you should try to avoid these triggers and monitor your symptoms again. If indeed your symptoms continue to persist for more than a week, you are advised to do a doctor's examination to find the exact cause so that it can be managed properly as well. Given the corona virus pandemic now, you should see a doctor if your symptoms are very severe and very disturbing to your activities. If it doesn't interfere with your activities, you can try to take cold medicines that can be bought freely at the pharmacy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
