How To Deal With Vasomotor Rhinitis That Has Not Healed For 1 Month?
I am exposed to vasamotor rhinitis. I have had a second consultation and have not yet recovered (it has been 1 month). Do I have to go to the year again, until when will this rhinitis heal?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Rhinitis is an inflammatory condition of the inner lining of the nose. Broadly speaking, this rhinitis is divided into two, allergic and non-allergic. Vasomotor rhinitis is another name for nonallergic rhinitis, or it can also be called idiopathic rhinitis. Idiopathic means unknown. This is because there are many things that can trigger vasomotor rhinitis, including:
Air pollution Cigarette smoke Weather changes Alcohol and perfume Spicy food Side effects of drugs Stress Hormonal changes during menstruation or pregnancy in women
In each person, the causes can be different. So in your case, it could actually happen that you should be able to recover, but because the main principle of vasomotor rhinitis treatment is to avoid the factors that cause symptoms, as long as you are still exposed to triggers, such as pollution or cigarette smoke, the disturbance you feel will not go away lost. Our advice, if your symptoms do not improve or worsen at least 2 weeks from your last visit to the doctor, have your condition checked again at the ENT for evaluation and look for other possible causes such as nasal polyps or sinusitis.
In the meantime, try to find out what triggers are around you. Is it dust, animal hair, pollution, cigarette smoke or so on and try to avoid it as much as possible. Take the medicine given by your doctor regularly, and also help by consuming warm drinks or soups to further ease your breathing. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
