Mucus In The Throat And Nose Feels Sore?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Irritation in the airways due to inhalation of dust and smoke (including cigarette smoke) can indeed trigger discomfort around the nose, throat, or other parts of the airways, such as itching, burning, dryness, or even slimy. This condition is not always dangerous. However, some health problems, such as allergies, viral or bacterial infections, as well as immune disorders (such as cystic fibrosis or HIV) can make recurring complaints more frequent and the intensity even more severe. In women, hormonal fluctuations, for example when approaching menstruation or while pregnant is young, these complaints can also appear more conspicuous.
Provided that your complaints do not make you fever, shortness of breath, hoarseness, nausea, vomiting, coughing, and difficulty sleeping, often this condition is not dangerous. However, if your complaint really feels disturbing and repeats very often, it doesn't hurt you to check yourself directly to the doctor, ENT specialist, or specialist in internal medicine to be evaluated more deeply, for example by blood tests, allergic tests, x-rays, airway endoscopy, and so on. In this way, the potential for dangerous conditions can generally be detected and treated early.
At this time, don't worry too much and don't take any medicine without doctor's advice. You can try the following steps first so that your complaints improve:
Avoid exposure to dust and smoke, for example by using a mask, asking colleagues who smoke to smoke in a special room, limit out of the house when conditions are smoky and dusty
Always keep the cleanliness of the place where you live and do your activities
Avoid excessive use of fans and air conditioners
Use an air humidifier when the air in your environment is dry
Drink warm water and eat more hearty foods
In between meals, also eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Do not be too tired of activities and screaming
Go to bed early and regularly
Hope this helps ...
