Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Koncha (concha) are folds in the nasal cavity lined with mucosa whose function is to humidify the air that enters the respiratory tract. The conchae also produce mucus continuously, which plays an important role in preventing the entry of harmful foreign particles into the deeper respiratory tract.
Concha enlargement (concha hypertrophy) may have many possible causes, but the most common are related to respiratory tract infections by viruses, bacteria, allergies, neurovascular disorders (vasomotor rhinitis), hormonal changes, to side effects of drugs (eg heart medications, antihypertensives, birth control pills). ). This condition can cause the sufferer to experience nasal congestion which can be mild in intensity but can also be so severe that it can only improve with the use of decongestants. It could also, mucus will accumulate in the nasal cavity, even swallowed into the throat, and cause facial and head pain that is quite annoying. A deviated nasal septum (a sloping nasal septum) can also exacerbate these symptoms.
Treatment of koncha hypertrophy can be done by giving several types of drugs. However, if the complaint does not improve with conservative therapy, then surgery can also be done. If your complaint is accompanied by a deviated nasal septum, then the second treatment option, namely surgery, may be more considered. Therefore, you should consult directly with an ENT specialist so that the best treatment can be identified according to your condition.
To prevent complaints from getting worse, you should take the following steps:
Prevent yourself from being exposed to allergens, such as cold temperatures, pollen, dust mites, animal dander
Stay away from cigarettes, pollution, and the smoke
Don't rub your nose too much
Use a mask to protect the nose from the entry of harmful foreign substances
Limit consumption of cold drinks and food
Increase your intake of vitamin C
When you feel a stuffy nose, try compressing your nose with warm water so that the mucus melts
Hope it helps ya..
