At night, my doc would like to ask my nose is always blocked like runny nose but it’s hard to get out, it’s been really long for about 1 year but sometimes sometimes I have difficulty breathing because of this stuffy nose … So what do I suggest?

Hello Hendya,

Thank you for the question.

Nasal congestion can certainly interfere with breathing. Although it's not always dangerous, if a complaint has been around for a very long time (more than 1 week), it's good that you don't leave it alone. Check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor for further evaluation, such as rhinoscopy, allergy testing, x-rays, nasal cavity endoscopy, CT scan, or maybe other supporting tests.

Here are some conditions that often cause a blocked nose that doesn't heal:

 Allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity due to allergies) Rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity and sinuses, other than due to allergies, this condition is often associated with viral or bacterial infections) Nasal polyps (benign tumors originating from mucous membranes in the nose) Deviation of the nasal septum (bone slope) abnormal right and left nasal cavity) Other factors, such as infectious rhinitis, vasomotor rhinitis, medical rhinitis, nasopharyngeal cancer, foreign body entry, cystic fibrosis, sensitivity to certain drugs (such as aspirin), etc. Depending on the cause, conditions such as you later can be treated differently by a doctor, it may be enough to irrigate the nasal cavity, administering drugs, surgery, or may also need other therapeutic modalities. At home, you also need to do the following steps so that your complaint improves faster:

 Stay away from substances that might trigger allergies and irritations in the nasal cavity, such as cold, dust, pollen, smoke, pollution, etc. Do not touch the nose and the surrounding area with dirty hands. Use a mask, especially when outdoors activities. or the fan is too cold. If it is not possible (for example due to work demands), then use a water humidifier so that air humidity is more maintained. Drink warm water and fruits rich in vitamin C. Don't consume cold food and drinks. Regularly exercise and live a healthy lifestyle so that endurance remains excellent. help huh ..
