Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The condition you are experiencing right now is irritation of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity. In normal conditions, the mucous membrane is known as the mucosa in a valley and wet condition, but in certain conditions dryness can occur which causes the mucosa to become irritated and redness occurs. Some of the conditions that can trigger this situation are as follows:
Long activity in the air conditioned room, this condition causes dryness of the mucous membrane of the nasal passages including the nasal cavity.
The air is too hot
An allergic condition. Allergy to dust, smoke or other types of substances causes the nasal mucosa to become easily irritated.
Lack of body hydration. Lack of consuming fluids can lead to dryness which affects not only the nasal cavity but also the body as a whole.
Side effects of certain drugs. Too often consuming cold medicines that contain decongestants can also trigger dryness of the airways.
There is an injury to the nose, one of which can be due to cleaning the nasal cavity that is too hard.
The presence of a deformity of the nose such as a bent nasal bone can be due to heredity or a previous injury
Sinusitis. Inflammation of the sinus passages causes secretions to continue to flow through the cavity which causes irritation and redness.
If your condition has been going on for a long time and is recurring, it is advisable to do a consultation and direct examination to a doctor either a general practitioner or an ENT doctor if you really want a detailed examination. Thus a suitable and optimal handler can be carried out.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
