I want to ask my mother if there is a fungus in her nose, you can’t feel anything “.. What is the danger then what’s the solution?
Are you saying your mom can't smell anything? Do you mean a lump in the nose? Here I will discuss further about the decrease in the sense of smell or not being able to smell. If the intention of your question is not this, please create a new question so that it can be explained again.
A decrease in the sense of smell to the point where you can't smell any smell is called anosmia. Anosmia can occur due to several things, including:
Nasal congestion, for example during colds, flu, sinusitis, allergic and nonallergic rhinitis. Deviation of the septum / septum deviation of nasal polyps Nasal deformities and rowayat nose jobs Injuries to the nose Side effects of certain drugs Drug abuse, such as inhaling cocaine Other medical conditions that cause damage olfactory nerves: old age, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, nutritional disorders, exposure to toxic chemicals. To determine the cause of anosmia requires direct examination by a doctor. The doctor will conduct interviews, physical examinations, and supporting examinations such as nasal endoscopy, X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs if necessary to determine the cause of the anosmia. Meanwhile, the treatment of anosmia will be adjusted to the patient's condition, for example with steroids, decongestants, antihistamines, antibitics, to surgery if necessary.
Anosmia conditions should be treated immediately so as not to interfere with daily life. Anosmia sufferers can have difficulty detecting stale food, fires, leaking gases, chemicals, and sometimes because they can't smell delicious food, anosmia sufferers lose their appetite.
Therefore, I recommend that your mother check with an ENT doctor so that further tests can be done to determine the cause of the anosmia she is experiencing. Furthermore, if the cause is confirmed, the doctor can provide the right treatment for your mother.
