Good afternoon, it turns out that after going back to treatment to get rid of congestion my nose has not healed, it’s been 2 weeks still clogged. After I searched for the possibility, it turned out that my polyp was swollen after I saw it in the mirror. The question is, is there a natural way to cure it? and is it dangerous if not handled by a doctor? nThank you.
Is it one-sided congestion or both? Blocked nose can be caused by several things including:
Presence of infections: flu, sinusitis Allergic and non-allergic rhinitis Nasal polyps Deviation of the septum or crooked nasal septum Churg-Strauss syndrome Thyroid gland disorders Tumors and malignancies of the nasal cavity Clogged nose that you experience can indeed be caused by polyps, but it must be confirmed first by a doctor through an examination directly yes. It could be that nasal congestion is caused by other things as above. For the time being you can try to do some of the following tips:
Use a nasal spray or nasal drops containing NaCl which are available over the counter in pharmacies Inhale warm water Use a humidifier Drink lots of warm water Avoid cold drinks When you have a cold, blow your nose as needed and not too hard Take a shower with warm water Wash your face with warm water Avoid swimming in a swimming pool that contains chlorine Sleep with a higher pillow. Get enough rest. If with the tips above, a clogged nose complaint does not improve, you should check with an ENT doctor so that further tests can be done to determine the cause of your nasal congestion. If the cause is confirmed, the doctor can provide more optimal treatment for you. Handling will be adjusted to the results of the examination both with drugs to action blah necessary.
