Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Colds are often not a serious condition, and can improve on their own as long as they are treated properly, for example if they occur due to allergies or viral infections. However, colds can also occur due to more serious conditions, for example anatomic disorders in the nasal cavity (such as nasal septum deviation), bacterial infections, rhinosinusitis (inflammation of the nasal and sinus cavities), benign or malignant tumors around the nasal cavity (eg polyps or nasopharyngeal carcinoma), immune disorders (eg cystic fibrosis), to the sensitivity of certain drugs. As a result of these conditions, colds can last for a long time, recur very often, accompanied by thick snot, abnormal color (eg yellowish, greenish, or containing blood), or cause other complaints, such as olfactory disorders, taste disorders, facial pain and head, nasal voice, snot swallowed to the throat (post nasal drip), and so on.
Handling of colds that do not heal is not enough you do it independently at home. You need to get yourself checked by a doctor or ENT specialist so that your condition can be evaluated for the cause, and given the appropriate treatment. In certain cases, your doctor may also direct you to undergo laboratory tests, nasal endoscopy, x-rays, CT scans, allergy tests, and so on.
For now, you can try the following steps first:
Avoid exposure to cold, dry and windy air
Use a mask
Use an air humidifier
Don't hold your nose with dirty hands
Always maintain personal hygiene and the environment in which you live
Do not smoke
Stay away from smoke, dust, pollution and other airway irritants
Expand exercise, eat nutritious foods, eat fruits rich in vitamin C, and rest regularly so that your immune system improves
Stay away from substances that are vulnerable to make you allergic
Do not carelessly take medication, including anti-cold medications
Hope this helps ...
