Prolonged Runny Nose Accompanied By Patches Of Blood And Lumps In The Upper Cavity Of The Mouth?
Hello, I’m Amalia Putri, 16 years old. I have had a cold for 1 week and I am accompanied by greenish phlegm. After a few days, my throat was hard to swallow and my body was hot. When I saw it turned out that the cavity above my mouth looked like there were blood spots. I have been treated at a health center, and the doctor said only colds and coughs are common, and the doctor recommends to get enough sleep and adequate rest and exercise regularly. A day later, a soft lump appeared in the upper cavity of my mouth. And, my tongue does not feel anything while I am eating. N n What doctor should I see? Will the lump get bigger and bigger? What treatment should I do? Please help. Thank you 🙂

Colds and coughs with green phlegm, accompanied by difficulty swallowing, and fever, often signifying an infection, can be due to viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms. Various types of microorganisms can trigger this complaint, including influenza, diphtheria, streptococcus, staphylococcus, HIV, candida sp., And so on. The focus of this infection can occur in various areas of the respiratory system or other organ systems, for example rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavity), tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils), pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat), laryngitis (inflammation of the voice box), bronchitis (inflammation of the bronchi), pneumonia (inflammation of the lung parenchyma), and so on. The appearance of reddish spots, numb tongue, accompanied by soft lumps in the oral cavity that you are experiencing is most likely part of the inflammation in the oral cavity that is triggered by this infection. The lump may also originate from lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes), infection of the oral cavity, mucocele (salivary gland cyst), or other benign and malignant tumors.
If it is true that your complaint has lasted more than 1 week, in fact, the steps you have taken are right, namely by checking your complaint directly to the doctor. The doctor who examines you directly certainly understands exactly what the underlying conditions are for your complaint. In addition, you also need to make the following efforts so that healing runs more optimally:
Drink plenty of warm water
Expand also eat fruits that are rich in vitamin C, for example guava, orange, strawberry, pear, longan
Reduce food that is too greasy, spicy, and deprived
Don't get too tired, especially in smoky and polluting environments
Do not smoke
Use a nose and mouth mask
Avoid exposure to substances that are vulnerable to make you allergic, for example cold, dust, pollen
Diligently brush your teeth and rinse with salt solution
If within 1 to 3 days your complaint still does not improve despite having done the above steps optimally, do not hesitate to go back to the doctor or ENT specialist to be given further solutions, yes. It may be, the doctor will direct you to undergo further tests, for example laboratories, x-rays, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
