Prolonged Runny Nose With Lumps Of Mucus In The Nose?
,I’m sefi. like this I’ve had a cold for about 1/2 year And I’ve often checked with my personal general practitioner. Several times, the doctor always said it was a cold allergy, and had been given a nasal spray but it didn’t go away. Usually this bothers me a lot in the morning on my way to school because I have a cold and clean many times, and at night because I often experience shortness of breath. Besides that, I also feel like there is a lump of mucus in the respiratory tract, I have tried to remove it many times but the lumps seem to be running out. Thank you.
Thanks for the question. Having a runny nose and sneezing for a long time can be caused by:
Allergic rhinitis, namely inflammation of the nasal wall caused by allergies such as dust, cold air, cigarette smoke. Symptoms will appear when the sufferer is exposed to things that cause allergic sinusitis, namely inflammation of the sinus walls (air cavities under the cheekbones, nose, and forehead). sinusitis because the nasal cavity and sinuses communicate with each other.
The main treatment for allergic rhinitis is to avoid the cause because allergies cannot be cured. Existing treatment aims to reduce the symptoms you are experiencing, such as the use of antihistamines, anti-inflammatory drugs, or nasal sprays.
Rhinitis and sinusitis can cause mucus production to increase and collect in the sinuses or nasal cavities so that you can feel the blockage in the airways. To deal with this condition usually must be used decongestant drugs that can relieve breathing. You can also try inhaling hot steam (such as steam from a hot bowl of water) to thin this mucus to make it easier to expel.
Please you as much as possible avoid exposure to cold air. Avoid using air conditioners that are too cold at night to reduce nasal congestion or sneezing symptoms. You can also consult an ENT specialist for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
