Thank you for the question.
Allergy is indeed one of the most common triggers of itchy, sneezing, and runny nose. Many allergens can trigger this allergic reaction, for example cold, dust, pollen, animal hair, mold spores, and so on. This allergy occurs due to genetic and environmental influences, which makes the immune system mistakenly regard contact between a substance and the body as dangerous, when in fact it is not. So far, allergies can not be cured, symptoms can only be controlled and prevented recurrence so that patients can return to their normal activities.
Regarding your condition, without checking directly, it is certainly not our authority to provide treatment to you. However, given the current conditions, when COVID-19 is rampant, you are also advised to postpone the examination to the doctor, unless there are severe conditions in order to minimize your risk of contracting the disease. Therefore, to improve your complaint, it is recommended to do it first:
Use a mask
Keep your body and environment always clean, such as by regularly vacuuming the house, diligently bathing and washing hands, changing clothes, changing sprays and curtains periodically, not holding hands unless washing hands
Get plenty of rest, exercise regularly, drink a lot, and eat foods that are rich in antioxidants
Stay away from cigarettes, and other potential allergens, as mentioned above
Use an air humidifier to maintain the humidity of the air around you
Dry yourself in the morning sun before 9
Irrigation your nasal cavity, which is by spraying NaCl liquid into the right and left nasal cavities alternately using a syringe that has been removed by the needle
If you already have severe symptoms, for example shortness, vomiting, cold sweating, palpitations, high fever for more than 3 days, weakness, and so on, it is advisable to check directly with a doctor, ENT doctor, or internist. Worried, not only because of allergies, your complaints could be aggravated by a viral or bacterial infection, airway irritation, immunity disorders, benign or malignant tumors around the nasal cavity, also disturbances in the heavier airways so that it requires further treatment from a doctor . Before going to the doctor, don't take any medicine for your own good.
Hope this helps ...
