Overcoming Sneezing, Runny Nose, Itchy Ears, Accompanied By Sore Throat?
I want to ask … I had previously had a cold sneezing and runny nose for 1 month and even my ears felt very itchy and my throat hurt, and when I did the doctor’s examination I was diagnosed with allergic rhinitis which caused the animal from the cat fur. After I avoided the cat and didn’t raise it anymore and took medicine from a doctor’s prescription, my flu recovered but it didn’t last long. this flu still continues until now, pdhl I always try to keep clean u0026amp; avoid all kinds of causes from my allergies. What steps should I take? And about what causes these allergies to be more significant to what?
Thank you for the question.
Sneezing, runny nose, itchy ears, accompanied by sore throat is indeed a possibility that you have allergic rhinitis, which is inflammation of the nasal cavity due to exposure to allergens. There are many types of allergens that can trigger rhinitis. Not only animal hair, animal feces, mold spores, pollen, dust mites, animal fleas, cold temperatures, etc. also often trigger this condition. Not only complaints in the nose (such as sneezing, runny nose, and runny nose), this inflammation can also spread to the ears and throat (because it is connected through the nasopharynx and Eustachian tubes), causing ear and throat can also feel itching, pain, and slimy.
It may be that your condition that is still recurring after you stay away from animal hair indicates that there are other allergens that can also trigger your complaints. It could also, your complaints have not improved because there are other factors that complicate it, for example nasal polyps, vasomotor rhinitis, infectious rhinitis, otitis media, pharyngitis, immune disorders, sensitivity to certain drugs, and so on.
It is uncertain whether you are only allergic to cat hair or if there are actually other allergens if there is no direct physical examination by a doctor. With a doctor's examination also, only to find out whether your complaint is purely due to allergic rhinitis, or if there are other complications. Therefore, we suggest, if indeed the complaints have not improved after getting a doctor's treatment, immediately visit the doctor or ENT doctor for further examination, for example by allergic tests, blood tests, airway endoscopy, x-rays, and so on.
In the meantime, you should not take any medicine, except what your doctor has given you. Get plenty of rest, use a mask (especially when outdoors activities or in a crowded environment), improve personal hygiene and your environment, live a healthy diet, eat also variations in fruit rich in vitamin C, limit consumption of cold and oily foods and drinks. , and stay away from cigarettes and smoke as well.
Hope this helps ...
