Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Inflammation of the nasal cavity (rhinitis) can cause sufferers to feel irritated because they experience a runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy nose, cough, dizziness, and various other complaints. This condition can generally be classified into 2, namely:
Allergic rhinitis occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly considers the entry of certain particles into the airways as dangerous, but it is not. This condition is closely related to an inherited (genetic) predisposition to atopic. Often times, people with allergic rhinitis also suffer from other diseases related to atopic tendencies, such as atopic dermatitis (eczema) or asthma. Some of the allergens that often trigger this condition are cold temperatures, pollen, dust mites, mold spores that settle on furniture, and so on. Nonallergic rhinitis
Allergic rhinitis occurs due to various triggers that can cause blood vessels in the nasal cavity to widen and experience congestion, for example: Environmental irritants, such as dust, smoke, cigarettes, perfume Changes in weather or humidity Infection, such as viruses Side effects of consuming certain foods, such as spicy foods, heat, alcohol. Side effects of drugs, eg aspirin, ibuprofen, beta blockers. Hormonal changes, for example during menstruation, pregnancy, or using certain hormonal contraceptives. Symptoms of rhinitis can worsen when you swim most likely due to your body's excessive exposure to cold water. Or, it could be, there are some chemicals that are often added to water in swimming pools that accidentally enter your nasal cavity.
This condition can actually be prevented in the following ways:
Try to swim in a private pool, not mixed with many people. If possible, swim in a pool with warm temperatures. Do not swim too long. Stop when your body starts to feel cold or uncomfortable. Avoid swimming in pools with harmful chemicals added to it. After swimming, wash your body with warm, good quality water. Drink lots of warm water after swimming. Generally, if the rhinitis symptoms appear temporarily, this condition is not dangerous. However, if the complaint is very disturbing, there is nothing wrong with having to check with an ENT specialist so that the best treatment can be given according to your condition.
To accelerate growth, actually not only swimming you can do. You can also do other sports that are at a lower risk of triggering the recurrence of your rhinitis symptoms, for example playing basketball, jogging, cycling, skipping, and so on. Consult with your personal trainer regarding the most appropriate sport for you to do according to your health condition.
Hope it helps ..
