The Cause In The Nose There Are Lumps Disappearing And Clogged And Often The Flu?
Since 2015, I often sneeze, maybe because my college is dusty, since then my flu never stopped. My flu was slimy yellow, green sometimes there was blood speck. My face when pressed sometimes hurts under my eyes near the nose area. Nasal congestion is difficult to breathe and to headaches. Right now in my nose there are lumps that like to appear and disappear, and hurt when pressed.
Thank you for the question.
Sneezing, nasal congestion, greenish and even runny nose, difficulty breathing, bumps appear in the nasal cavity that arise, accompanied by pain around the face close to the nose and headaches are likely to indicate that you have polyps. Nasal polyps themselves are a type of benign tumor originating from excessive growth of the nasal mucus layer due to chronic inflammation, such as due to allergies, airway infections, asthma, sinusitis, or sensitivity to certain drugs. Other conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and vitamin D deficiency, can also increase your risk of developing nasal polyps. These nasal polyps can cause complications in the form of sinusitis, and sebalinya, sinusitis can also trigger the growth of nasal polyps. Sinusitis is what can then cause pain around the face and head as you experience.
Although it's not always dangerous, your condition can obviously be very disturbing to your activities, because the symptoms are often repeated. Therefore, you need to check your condition directly to the doctor or ENT specialist. It is feared, conditions that are not handled properly can be the focus of infections that are prone to spread to other organs, including the brain. If it is true that nasal polyps trigger your complaints, then the treatment can later be done by giving your doctor medication, surgery, or also other therapeutic modalities. Investigations, for example x-rays, biopsies, blood tests, allergy tests, etc. may also be done by a doctor. With this step, the possibility of other conditions that can cause similar complaints, for example nasal cavity cancer, enlargement of nasal Konka, rhinosinusitis, etc., can also be identified and given the right treatment.
As for now, you can ease your complaint with the following steps:
If you feel severe pain in the face and head, relieve it first by taking the drug paracetamol
Avoid exposure to dry air, cold, smoke, pollution, and other substances that can trigger allergies as well as airway irritation, such as pollen, animal hair, and so on
Do not hold or pry excessive nose, especially with dirty hands
Use the air humidifier in the area where you live and do your activities
Sleep early and regularly, and exercise diligently, so that your immune system increases
Eat a variety of nutritious foods, rich in vitamins C, D, and other antioxidants
Do not smoke
Don't overeat and drink cold
Use a mask
Do not carelessly take other medicines without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
