The Cause Of The Flu Has Not Healed For 2 Weeks?
So at first 2 weeks ago I caught a runny nose the green color was not clear so there was a cough with phlegm too, at that time I took medicine but it wasn’t right. and then I didn’t treat the postpartum because the problem was pretty good, the snot had subsided so it became clear and it started a little but my cough was still durable until now, but now it has subsided quite a bit, well, so now I have 2 cefixime antibiotics but how come my nose is blocked so it’s rich I want the flu again, that’s why yes, my smell also decreases
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Colds (flu) and olfactory disorders that last a long time to heal are most often caused by rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity). This condition can occur due to various triggers, for example allergies, viral infections, bacterial infections, irritation of the airways, to the entry of foreign objects into the nasal cavity. People with certain anatomic variations, such as deviation of the nasal septum, are also more at risk of developing this condition. Not just colds and olfactory disorders, rhinitis often also triggers coughing up phlegm, excessive snot, dizziness, headaches, watery eyes, fever, and many other complaints.
In addition to rhinitis, your complaint may also be caused by benign or malignant tumors around the nasal cavity (such as nasopharyngeal polyps or carcinomas), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities), immune disorders, and so on.
If it's true that your complaint hasn't improved after 2 weeks or more, try checking your complaint directly to the doctor or ENT specialist. Investigations, such as laboratories, x-rays, rhinoscopy, etc. can also be done by doctors if they suspect that there is a more serious condition.
In the meantime, the following steps should be taken to improve complaints:
Use a mask covering the nasal cavity to prevent the entry of foreign objects
Shower diligently, and wash your hands with antiseptic soap
Avoid contact with extreme temperatures, dust, smoke, pollution, animal dander, pollen, and other substances that might trigger allergies and respiratory tract irritation
Take a bath and drink with warm water
Limit consumption of food and cold drinks
Increase consumption of fruits rich in vitamin C
Do not smoke
Don't also carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
