Nasal Congestion And Pain Radiating To The Eyes?
hello, I have symptoms of nasal congestion, if I get dust I feel like my nasal bones are cracked and the pain reaches my eyes so that my eyes become red and feel very uncomfortable. This symptom has existed since 2 years ago. How should I handle it? thank you
Hi Nanda, Thank you for the question.
Have you seen a doctor for further examination and treatment? Apart from nasal congestion, do you have other symptoms such as runny nose, itchy nose, sneezing, and watery eyes? Does this complaint always occur when you are exposed to dust?
If this complaint occurs every time you are exposed to dust, then the cause is allergic rhinitis. Rhinitis is inflammation of the nasal wall that can be caused by allergies or non-allergies (eg infection). In allergic rhinitis, symptoms are triggered by exposure to dust, pollen, animal hair, cold air. Symptoms that sufferers can experience are nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy nose, sneezing, watery eyes, and itchy eyes.
If this complaint has occurred for 2 years, you should check with your doctor to determine the things that can trigger these symptoms. Usually the doctor will recommend an allergy test to find out. You need to know the things that trigger this complaint so you can avoid it because allergic rhinitis cannot be cured, but the symptoms can be controlled with drugs. The doctor will provide the right treatment for you after examining you. To relieve nasal congestion, you can inhale hot steam from a bowl of hot water or consume soup or warm drinks. Meanwhile, to relieve pain, you can take paracetamol until you see a doctor.
Hope this information is useful.
