Nasal Congestion Never Heals?
Hello . I have complaints, my nose is clogged but not a cold, I have taken the usual medication but it is still not cured, what is going on and what I should do.
Hello Rudy Woody, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Nasal congestion complaints are very often experienced in everyday life. Some other complaints that often accompany these complaints are colds, coughs, dizziness, moving obstruction, obstructive sounds, etc. Nasal congestion occurs when tissue in the nose undergoes an inflammatory process. Inflammation can occur due to several things such as infections, allergic reactions, irritation due to dirty air, changes in nasal temperature.
Some possible causes of nasal congestion that don't heal are:
Vasomotor rhinitis. - The cause of vasomotor rhinitis is not known with certainty, but the temperature is strongly suspected at this time. Complaints typical of this disorder are nasal congestion move around and arise erratically. Allergic Rhinitis. - Allergic reactions also often trigger triggers in the nose. Inflammatory reactions in the nose cause the Konka to become large / swollen so that it covers the airway. Snot that usually comes out runny and clean. Rhinitis infection. - Similar to allergic rhintis only it's caused by an infection. If the infection is bacterial then snot will turn green, and if the virus is clear. Nasal polyps. - Tissue that grows in the nasal canal and bertagkai. Usually parents will worry if there are lumps like that. But usually these lumps are not malignant and harmless. Sinusitis.- Inflammation of the cavity - face and head cavity caused by accumulation of secretions or fluid in the cavity. Usually the complaint that will stand out is pain in the face, when looking down will be more painful. Flu. - One of the diseases that we often experience daily due to H. Influenze virus infection Some of the above possibilities can be confirmed if the diagnosis has been done directly by a doctor. The handling is also different but basically the use of antihistamines and steroids is often used to reduce the symptoms of sneezing and nasal congestion.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid factors that can trigger nasal congestion. Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption because it can lead to irritation. Evaluate the condition of your snot and blockage, if there are changes in color, odor, and consistency immediately contact a doctor. Use a protective mask when traveling out, to minimize contact with disease. Get enough rest and take care of your activities. If the condition continues to be felt and getting worse, immediately consult a ENT specialist. That's all I can answer, hopefully you can please and help.
Thank you :)
