I have a stuffy nose (a kind of runny nose) that I’ve been suffering from for more than 3 years. I only complain of a runny nose, sneezing more than 3 times.rnIs that a doctor?

Hi resiayana,

A blocked nose that has been going on for a long time should not be underestimated because in addition to disrupting daily life, it can also reduce oxygen intake to the body, especially the brain, which in itself can cause various health problems. Nasal congestion and sneezing most often indicate symptoms of allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity due to allergic triggers), but without direct examination other possibilities cannot be ruled out, such as:

chronic sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) nasal polyps septal deviation (the shape of the nasal bone tilts to one side) vasomotor rhinitis (due to widening of the nasal blood vessels) rhinitis medicamentosa (due to long-term use of drugs that are inserted through the nose) swelling of the adenoids (a glands behind the nose and oral cavity) other tumors, both benign and malignant (eg nasopharyngeal carcinoma) To rule out the above possibilities, a more adequate examination result is needed, therefore it is recommended that you consult directly with your doctor regarding the complaints you are experiencing, so that can be examined thoroughly including looking into the nasal cavity if necessary, supporting examinations such as blood tests, X-rays, allergy tests, CT scans are necessary. Treatment will of course be adjusted to the results of the doctor's diagnosis.

In the meantime, here are some other suggestions that might help:

Identify and avoid factors that trigger nasal congestion (eg cold air, dust, animal hair, etc.) Inhale warm steam from a container filled with hot water Wash your nose with isotonic nasal cleaners sold in the market Avoid cigarette smoke and pollution, always have a mask when traveling Make sure to stay at home have good ventilation and air circulation. Keep your immune system fit by consuming nutritious food (multiple vegetables and fruits) and drinking enough water (at least 6-8 glasses/day) You can read related articles: tips for dealing with nasal congestion
