Overcoming The Nose And Throat Feels Slimy Prop On Smokers?
Good morning dokKaya Rana I was 16 years old. I was a smoker after I got this disease. I immediately stopped smoking. So this is the last day I smoke, I’m short of breath and also runny nose, well, the runny nose is clogged on the left side and there is always a phlegm that is stuck in my throat, I guess that’s why? ± 4 months I experienced it, how do I cure it? Thank you
As everyone knows, cigarettes contain dozens of kinds of hazardous chemicals that should not be inhaled. Each of these chemicals can cause chronic inflammation in the mucosa (wall) of the respiratory tract. Chronic inflammation causes the mucosa to become swollen and excessive mucus production of the respiratory tract. This is what causes a smoker, it's easier to experience coughing colds repeatedly and mucus production that continues to exist.
Mucus can continue to exist and is thick until it covers the respiratory tract, even though a smoker is not experiencing a cold cough. The mucus causes choking and breathing that is not relieved. When someone stops smoking, the respiratory tract will undergo a process of regeneration (cell repair) gradually. Improvements certainly do not occur directly and require monthly or annual time. That is why, despite quitting smoking, mucus has not completely disappeared.
In addition, the presence of mucus that blocks continuously can be caused by allergic rhinitis, irritation due to dust, irritation due to air pollution, inflammation due to exposure to chemicals (for example cigarette smoke from other smokers). Please consult with your doctor about this problem. The doctor will do a physical examination of your respiratory tract. If deemed necessary, the doctor will do an x-ray examination to help make the diagnosis. The treatment will be adjusted to the results of the doctor's examination. Your doctor may give anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine to relieve these symptoms. You should also avoid exposure to dust and smoke by using a mask when outside the room. Improve ventilation and lighting the room.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
