Headaches Accompanied By Red Eyes And Swelling During Colds?
Afternoon doc. I want to ask, I have a cold, right when I want to get rid of this runny fluid it hurts directly to the head and it feels hot too. Continues to run to my eyes immediately red and shrink my eyes This is why huh ???
When a person has a cold, inflammation of the mucous membranes (mucosa) of the digestive tract. Mucosa becomes swollen, causing nasal congestion. In addition, inflammation also triggers the production of more respiratory tract mucus, so that the runny nose, even the throat can also be slimy. Blockages in the nose and sinus cavities often cause headaches. When a person expels mucus by exhaling strongly, the pressure in the head rises, thereby increasing pain in the head.
Pain in the head may also be accompanied by pain in the eyes, accompanied by redness. Sometimes also, the ear can also be painful or uncomfortable such as hearing loss. We recommend that when you remove nasal mucus, leave both nostrils open and exhale with medium strength, not too strong. The right is to avoid pain in the facial area.
If after more than 1-2 weeks the cold has not improved, you should consult a doctor. Long-lasting infections are generally caused by bacteria, so you may need appropriate additional therapy. In the meantime, try to get enough rest, sleep 6-8 hours a night, drink 2 L of water per day, and eat lots of vegetables and fruit.
Thus my explanation, hopefully can help. Regards.
