Hello L Yanti,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The existence of a complaint that you feel can be considered by various underlying medical conditions. The first thing you can think of is an allergic condition. Allergies to dust, pollution, cold air or other substances can trigger your condition. However, it is also necessary to consider other medical conditions that can cause the same complaint, as well as the following:
Allergic rhinitis. Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose that is triggered by certain substances. Accompanied by an itchy eye.
Irritation of the mucous membranes of the nose due to dry air. Too long in the air conditioned room can trigger this
In itchy eyes, you can think of an irritation condition that can be triggered by dry air or the use of certain cosmetic ingredients.
Respiratory tract infection
Nasal polyps. The feeling of congestion in the nose can be triggered due to a plip or abnormal tissue growth in the nasal cavity.
Of the complaints you experience, most likely allergic rhinitis. although it does not rule out other causes of the condition. Some things that can be done to reduce your current complaints are as follows:
Avoid using AC for too long
Avoid exposure to dust, can do dust suction or wet cloth when cleaning the house and especially the bedroom
Avoid using carpets
Do not accumulate too many books and clothes in the bedroom.
Simply hydrate your body by drinking enough water
Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke
If necessary, do an allergy test to the doctor so that it is known what ingredients can trigger allergies.
To know for sure your condition, you need consultation and direct examination to a doctor. The consideration for an allergy examination or test and other examinations will be adjusted to the results of the consultation with the doctor later.
That's what I can say, hopefully it's useful.
