Afternoon dock, since a few months ago my nose docked problems. Suddenly clear mucous liquid came out of my nose and when it appeared my nose became very itchy and painful. I sneeze about a dozen times, my eyes are red and runny and the roof of my mouth is throbbing. Usually to stop it I wear a cloth mask. Why doc? Thanks
Hello Artha, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Sneezing and runny nose are not diseases, but they are symptoms of a disease that attacks the upper respiratory tract. You need to find out more about the underlying causes of the symptoms that you feel to reduce these symptoms. In addition, by knowing the exact cause, the therapy given will be in accordance with the cause. Colds and sneezing can be caused by several diseases, including:
Allergic rhinitis. Symptoms that appear in allergic rhinitis include itchy nose, itchy eyes and itchy, runny and stuffy nose, sneezing, sometimes accompanied by coughing, watery eyes, often patients experience bites on their skin.
Virus infection. Symptoms that appear are fever, cough, sore throat, headache, cough with phlegm, and muscle aches. Generally recover within 3 days
Bacterial infection. Bacterial infections have the same symptoms as viral infections, only for the period of infection caused by this service is usually longer
Colds caused by viral infections usually appear during the transition season and last for 3-14 days. From viral infections that do not heal because the immune system is not strong enough to fight the virus, the bacteria can also infect so that the healing period can be even longer.
Colds due to allergies occur when the sufferer is exposed to allergens, whereas viral and bacterial infections will only cause symptoms after a few days after infection. Colds caused by allergies can occur at any time and can subside immediately if allergens or triggers are gone. In the symptoms that you feel, it is most likely that these symptoms lead to allergic rhinitis. You have to understand what triggers it, such as pollution, dust, smoke, cigarettes, hair, animal debris, pollen, and so on. Cold weather can also be a risk factor for allergic rhinitis. You can do an allergy test to find out exactly what allergens cause a cold on yourself. The following are efforts that can be made to prevent allergic rhinitis:
Avoid storing dolls if not routinely washed
The floor must always be on the mop, not just on the broom to prevent dust from flying around
Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when doing activities outside the home
Take a shower immediately after activities from outside the house
Clean the carpet or even avoid using it at home to avoid accumulation of dust.
Postpone the examination to the ENT doctor during the corona virus pandemic. If a cold does not interfere with your activities. If your symptoms do not go away and are getting more and more annoying, then see yourself to the ENT doctor. The doctor will do a careful examination to overcome the allergy that you experience. It might also be able to give antihistamines, corticosteroid sprays and decongestants to help reduce the symptoms you feel. I hope this helps.
