Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Judging from the series of complaints that you convey, chances are what you experience is caused by nasal polyps.
Polyp itself is a type of benign tumor that can appear in parts of the body covered with mucosa (mucous membranes), including the nose. The presence of polyps in the nasal cavity can block the flow of air, which can make it difficult for you to breathe, especially if you lie on the side of the nasal cavity where the polyp is growing In addition, polyps can also trigger repeated inflammation in the nasal cavity which causes you to have more frequent colds, sneezing, and fever. Furthermore, excessive pressure in the nasal cavity due to the mass and inflammation above can trigger headaches, migraines, facial pain, and various other complaints. The presence of polyps can also cause blockage of the outlet that connects the sinus cavity and nasal cavity. This condition can lead to sinusitis, which is often marked by pain in the face, especially around the forehead, cheeks and behind the nasal cavity.
It is necessary to do a direct evaluation by a doctor regarding your complaints. Generally, it is enough with a direct physical examination or with the help of a special tool, namely a rhinoscopy, the doctor can identify if it is true that you have nasal polyps. And if necessary, you will be referred to an ENT specialist for further examinations, for example with nasal endoscopy, X-rays, CT scans, MRI, allergy tests, biopsy, and so on. Apart from polyps, your complaints may also arise due to other factors, such as nasal septal deviation, nasal cancer, sinusitis, other ARI (upper respiratory tract infection), the entry of foreign objects into the nasal cavity, and so on. Even with a direct doctor's examination, each of these other possibilities can be identified and handled better.
Nasal polyps occur because the exact cause is still unclear. However, many experts agree that the appearance of polyps is closely related to chronic inflammation (inflammation) that occurs in the nasal cavity and airways, for example in people with allergies (including asthma), people who often experience respiratory infections, or also who have a history of certain diseases, for example cystic fibrosis.
If it is true that your complaint occurs due to nasal polyps, then treatment can later be done through administering drugs (such as corticosteroids) to surgery. In the meantime, don't overhandle or scratch the lumps in your nasal cavity first. You can first avoid all things that often trigger allergies, namely cold temperatures, dust mites, pollen, and so on. If migraines, fever, headaches, and facial pain are bothersome, you can take paracetamol to make yourself feel more comfortable. Do not forget, always use a mask covering the nose to prevent the entry of harmful foreign particles into the nasal cavity, get more exercise, and also increase the intake of vitamin C.
