The Cause Of The Nose Feels Pain When Touched And Snot Smells?
good night, I was declared polyp yesterday. every time my nose is touched it will hurt and sometimes my nose will bleed and until now I think my snot smells. Is it true that I have polyps?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nasal polyps are tissue that grows on the inside of the nasal passages. In appearance, this tissue is similar to grapes hanging in the nose. The cause of this condition is still unknown, but it is thought to be triggered by a number of things, such as both allergies to dust mites, animal hair, drug allergies, and flower pollen allergies, then can also be due to suffering from infection, and inflammation of blood vessels.
In addition, those who have offspring with similar complaints, suffer from asthma, are aged over 40 years and male sex are more likely to be affected by this disease, although basically it can happen to anyone.
Regarding your question, this condition if still small generally does not cause symptoms. If it is large enough, there can be symptoms resembling colds such as slimy nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, itching around the eyes, decreased ability to smell, pain or pressure on the face, toothache in the upper jaw, headache and snoring. So the symptoms that you experience with bleeding, are not commonly found in the condition of polyps. A bleeding nose can occur in the wound, rupture of blood vessels, high blood pressure, and several other possibilities.
But apart from that, ultimately the diagnosis of polyps can be ascertained from direct examination. If there are polyps on a direct examination, even though the discharge is an unusual symptom, the diagnosis is still polyp and is still treated as a polyp. As for the bleeding, the source will be searched by direct examination and stopped. On the other hand, whatever resembles the symptoms of polyps, if no polyp tissue is found, then the diagnosis will not be polyps, but may be a deviation of the nasal septum, rhinitis or sinusitis.
Therefore, if you previously stated that the polyp was not an ENT doctor, this time consult an ENT doctor. If it is an ENT doctor but you are still in doubt, you may consult another ENT doctor. You may also say that sometimes your nose bleeds. But if this second ENT doctor also states that you have polyps, then it is most likely that they are and ask what the best treatment is.
For now, avoid getting rid of nasal mucus too hard, do swimming exercises, increase the consumption of warm water mixed with ginger, honey or lemon, take a shower or soak in warm water, avoid cigarettes, dust and pollution, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
