How To Deal With Allergies That Never Heal?
I am now 15 years old but this disorder started when I was 6 years old, at that time I often sneeze loudly and sneeze so much that my eyes turned red. Then I checked with the doctor and the doctor said I was allergic, allergic to spicy food, cold or drinking cold, dust. Then I was told to breathe hot steam to relieve sneezing. and can this be cured ???
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms that you experience are referred to as rhinitis or inflammation of the nose. Rhinitis has a variety of causes:
rhinitis due to infection (generally a virus), namely inflammation of the nose that occurs due to an infection in the respiratory tract
allergic rhinitis namely inflammation of the nose due to allergies, for example due to exposure to pollen flowers, dust lice, animal dandruff, mold spores, etc.
vasomotor rhinitis, namely inflammation of the nose due to non-allergic causes, such as hormonal changes, weather changes (cold air for example), exposure to pungent odors, use of certain medications, eating certain foods (such as eating spicy foods), etc.
When you see the trigger, the symptoms that you experience are more likely caused by vasomotor rhinitis. Generally in vasomotor rhinitis, colds that occur are not accompanied by itching of the nose, eyes, and throat as experienced in allergic rhinitis, although other symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion may be similar.
How to prevent vasomotor rhinitis is the same as allergic rhinitis by avoiding the trigger. If indeed you already know the triggers for your symptoms, you should avoid these triggers. There is no certain drug that can really cure this condition, sometimes vasomotor rhinitis can disappear on its own, but it can also continue to be experienced forever. Therapy is only intended to reduce the symptoms caused (for example giving decongestants for nasal congestion). The use of a humidifier or breathing warm water vapor can also help reduce the symptoms that arise due to vasomotor rhinitis.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
