, yesterday I choked on food, then there was some kind of food residue stuck in the nose (part of the roof of the mouth), so I tried to get the leftovers out, starting from how to suck into the esophagus or blow out through the nose, but there was no change. so I tried another way to use the water that I sucked through my nose, at night my nose started to become slimy as if I wanted a cold, the larynx also felt sore until now my nose was one-sided. I am afraid of infection or irritation in the nasal passages. is there a solution to my complaint?
Hello Silfa, thank you for the question.
In general, the condition where food is stuck in the mouth area is frequent, especially if the food is not chewed completely or too hard and when chewed, it forms debris from the food and gets stuck in the mouth area. However, usually these leftovers don't cause the symptoms you mentioned, such as sore throat, nasal discharge, etc. Instead, these conditions can be caused by:
Inflammation or infection of the tonsils / tonsils Inflammation or infection of the throat by viruses, bacteria, which causes sore throat, mucus in the airways, and can cause symptoms of coughing, hoarseness, and difficulty breathing due to swelling of the throat. Allergies to certain substances, for example food, drink, dust, certain weather conditions, etc. Conditions of sinusitis or inflammation of the sinuses Trauma to the nose and mouth area Acute respiratory infections Currently, I recommend that you reduce consumption of ice, and brush your teeth more frequently to Make sure all of the leftovers after you eat are gone and you can feel comfortable again. In addition, reduce the consumption of fried foods and drinks that are too hot. Get used to boiled foods or warm drinks.
Hope my explanation can help.
