The Cause Of The Breath Feels Lumpy Accompanied By A Nose Feels Slimy
Good night. I have a history of chronic bronchitis. These past few days I have had difficulty breathing, both inside and outside the room. It felt like a lot of mucus had gathered in my nose, but it was difficult for me to remove it through my nose. Sometimes I have to pull it out by mouth, but it also feels hard. This is very disturbing for me to breathe normally. In my mouth it feels like I’m sucking in dust like that. Why is that? And how to overcome it. Thank you in advance.
Thank you for the question.
Discomfort when breathing, which is like slimy or dusty around the nose and mouth, most likely indicates inflammation around the nasal cavity (rhinitis), oral cavity, or surrounding organs, such as the throat (pharyngitis), sinuses (sinusitis), etc. . Triggers of this inflammation can be many, for example due to allergies, irritation, exposure to dry air, viral or bacterial infections, immune disorders, gastric acid reflux, benign or malignant tumors, sensitivity to certain drugs, and so on. In addition to inflammation, it may also actually be that your complaint arises purely due to psychological disorders.
Your condition, if not accompanied by severe shortness or high fever for more than 3 days, is often not dangerous. Independently, you can handle your complaint first by:
Get more rest (at least 6-7 hours a day
Irrigation your nose, by spraying NaCl liquid into each nasal cavity using a syringe that has been removed by the needle
Use an air humidifier
Don't use the air conditioner or fan too cold, don't take a shower with cold water, don't eat or drink too cold
Drink plenty of warm water and fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Do not contact with dust, smoke, dry air, pollution, and other allergens
Use a mask if necessary
Diligent brushing teeth, and gargling with salt solution
Don't think too much
Discipline to exercise so that the immune system remains good
During a COVID-19 pandemic like this, you are advised to stay more at home and postpone seeing a doctor unless there is an emergency. Therefore, if the complaint has improved with the above efforts, you should not rush to see a doctor. You can check yourself to the doctor or ENT doctor if until a long time your complaint does not subside, or if there are danger signs as we have mentioned before, yes ...
I hope this helps.
