Frequent Smelly Nasal Discharge Accompanied By A Lump In The Throat?
Hello, I want to ask, why does my nose often runny even every time I remove it, it doesn’t take long for the snot to come back sometimes with a bad smell, until sometimes when I sleep like mucus that has accumulated in my throat, what am I experiencing this? symptoms of sinusitis
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses, which are the cavities behind the cheekbones and forehead, which are commonly caused by infection. Sinuses can cause symptoms in the form of headaches, fever, nasal congestion, runny nose, greenish yellow nasal mucus, facial pain when pressed, especially the forehead and cheek areas, reduced sense of smell, feeling like there is mucus in the throat, and bad breath.
Examination to confirm the condition of sinusitis is by interview, physical examination, and if necessary supporting examinations such as X-rays and CT scans. Treatment of sinusitis is by nasal spray containing saline, decongestants, corticosteroids, painkillers, and if necessary antibiotics. If there is no improvement or relapses are frequent, surgery options are considered.
Your complaint can indeed be caused by sinusitis, but a runny nose can also be caused by several other factors such as rhinitis, flu, foreign bodies, nasal irritation, polyps, and tumors in the nasal cavity. To ensure the cause must be examined directly by a doctor.
How long have you been feeling complaints? If complaints are often felt, I suggest that you check with an ENT doctor so that further tests can be done to determine whether the cause is sinusitis or not and then you can be given proper treatment by a doctor.
