Pain In The Right Side Of The Nose Bone When He Smells Strong Odors And Nosebleeds?
Afternoon. I want to ask. Maybe my nose is a bit sensitive, so if I smell a pungent odor (tllu a lot of perfume, cigarette smoke, cold air conditioning etc.) my nose (especially the right side) feels very painful and spreads to the eyes and head .. Until last year there was a nosebleed. several times when I sleep. This year, the same thing happened, especially when riding a motorcycle and removing the helmet glass. But until now there has been no nosebleed .. Please explain, should this be checked .. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A sore nose that radiates to the eye and head area, accompanied by increased sensitivity to odors and frequent nosebleeds are likely signs of sinusitis. This condition occurs when the sinus cavity, which is located around the nasal cavity, to be precise behind the forehead and cheekbones, becomes inflamed, usually caused by a blockage in the outlet that connects it to the nasal cavity. The causes of this blockage can be of various kinds, ranging from a mass in the nasal cavity, inflammation, infection, tumors, foreign bodies, and so on. As a result of this inflammation in the sinus cavities, mucus will be overproduced but difficult to expel, causing pressure to cause pain. Furthermore, this condition can also cause damage to blood vessels and nerve fibers in the nose so that you will be more susceptible to experiencing nosebleeds and smell disorders.
Nosebleeds may experience symptoms that vary from mild to severe. However, if your complaints recur too often, then you should not let them drag on. Try to see yourself directly to an ENT specialist. Usually, the doctor will carry out a thorough physical examination or also confirm it with supporting tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, and rhinoscopy to determine whether sinusitis is the trigger for your complaint, or if there are other causes, such as rhinitis, nasal septal deviation, nasal polyps, migraines. , cluster headaches, nasal cavity cancer, and so on. The treatment that will be given later can vary, from administering drugs to even surgery.
In the meantime, you should first avoid smells that are too strong that can trigger a recurrence of your complaints. Get plenty of rest, drink warm water, and avoid staying in an environment that is too cold (for example, an air-conditioned room). If the pain is very intense, you can first relieve it by taking paracetamol before seeing a doctor. When there is a nosebleed, press down on your nose with your forefinger and thumb, apply an ice cube to your nose to help the bleeding subside, and breathe in through your mouth.
Hope it helps ..
