Get A Cold If Not In A Cold Environment?
Hello, u003cbr u003eAfter coming home from Jakarta 5 days ago, I just caught a cold on my left side with yellowish green mucus accompanied by a watery left eye and sneezing. U003cbr u003eBut my main question is not how to cure it.
Thank you for the question. Do you experience a runny nose and sneezing when exposed to cold air? If so, then what you are experiencing is allergic rhinitis. Rhinitis is an inflammation of the mucosal wall of the nose which can be caused by an allergic reaction or other non-allergic cause. Apart from a runny nose and sneezing, sufferers can also experience an itchy nose, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, and watery eyes. Holding ice or taking a cold shower is not associated with temporary relief of symptoms, it may just happen. This habit has no bad effect in the long run. Basically, allergic rhinitis symptoms can be prevented by avoiding the cause. Allergic rhinitis occurs when the body overreacts to a particle in the air. Thus if you recognize the trigger then this trigger can be avoided. Do not hesitate to consult a doctor if this complaint does not improve. The doctor will need to examine you and determine the next treatment.
I hope this helps.
