Nasal Mucus Comes Out Mixed With Blood In Smokers?
I want to ask in the afternoon. I am 23 years old, I am a smoker today after I finished painting using pylox / paint aerosol mucus, my nose mixed with a little blood. I don’t feel dizzy / everything else is just nasal mucus mixed with a little blood. Guess why? Thank you
Smoking, especially those carried out routinely and in large quantities, naturally causes various problems. Not only problems in the respiratory tract, but also in other organs such as the heart, blood vessels, and brain. The earliest effect is generally felt is irritation or inflammation of the respiratory tract that occurs in a chronic manner. Smokers often do not realize this because inflammation occurs slowly. Usually characterized by excessive nasal mucus production or throat mucus. Mucus can disappear and arise. This happens because the respiratory mucosa is damaged by chronic inflammation, so cells produce mucus in their efforts to treat inflammation.
Damage to respiratory mucosal cells causes the respiratory tract to more easily experience infection and irritation. Infection can be caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Irritation can be caused by pollution fumes, certain chemicals, and so on. It is also possible that your respiratory mucosa is irritated due to aerosol paint. Injury to the mucosa then causes mild bleeding.
If the bleeding is mild, you don't need to take special measures. If the bleeding continues, accompanied by other symptoms such as shortness of breath or inflammation of the throat, then you should consult with a doctor or lung doctor.
Prevention is to use protective masks when in contact with aerosol paint or other chemicals. Try to gradually reduce smoking. This is important because you are not only responsible for your own health, but also responsible for the health of others who inhale your cigarette smoke.
Thus our explanation, I hope you benefit. Regards.
