Nasal congestion that you experience, one of which can be caused by the condition you mention is acute sinusitis.
Acute sinusitis is an inflammation of the structures of the nasal sinuses resulting in symptoms of pain in the cheeks (maxillary sinus), in the forehead area (frontal sinus), or in the corner of the eye (ethmoid sinus), runny nose, fever, headache, nasal discharge draining down the throat (post nasal drip).
However, nasal congestion can also be caused by other things, namely:
Inflammation of the nasal mucosa (rhinitis) Mass of the nose (nasal polyps) Allergy (allergic rhinitis) Crooked nasal bones To determine the cause of your complaint, it is better to consult an ENT doctor further. The doctor will dig further into your complaint and will perform an examination of the nose and surrounding area. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations in the form of blood tests, biopsy if there is a mass, CT scan, or x-ray. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your complaint according to the underlying conditions.
If you have previously checked with a doctor until the X-ray examination that you conveyed, continue the treatment as your doctor gave
Things you can do to improve and prevent worsening of your disease are:
Pour warm water in the basin, then inhale the warm steam that is generated. This can help thin the mucus in your nose so that it is easy to pass and reduce congestion. Do not scratch your nose because it can cause sores. Avoid blowing your nose with a strong blow because there is a risk of injury. Enough fluid intake by drinking about 2 liters of water per day. Get enough rest , sleep 7-8 hours a day Elevate the pillow while sleeping for comfort in breathing when the nose is blocked. This is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon :)
