The Flu Almost Every Week For The Past 2 Years?
Hello. I am 24 years old. Why is it that nearly 2 years I have always had a cold accompanied by the production of clear liquid secretions. Every contact with a fan, exposed to excess dust must be the flu. Even often without even knowing the trigger suddenly runny nose. When I went to Kurg for more than 5 years, I used to use my fan almost every day. Is that the cause? Because right back then, there was no history of cold or dust allergy. And in a week I almost never absent from the flu. Headache or sinus does not exist at all. So confused, are you allergic or not? Explanation please. thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A runny nose (flu) that secretes clear mucus is often indeed caused by an allergic reaction (allergic rhinitis). Not only wind or dust, these allergies can also be triggered by other allergens, for example pollen, mold spores, or other air substances. In fact, conditions that are caused by allergies often not only cause runny nose, but also accompanied by itching around the nose and eyes, watery eyes, nasal congestion, sneezing, and this condition will recur every time you are exposed to allergens.
In addition to allergies, there are many other conditions that can also cause this complaint, including:
Viral or bacterial infections Vasomotor rhinitis Nasal polyps Sinusitis Deviation of the nasal septum Immune disorders (such as in people with HIV), etc. In most cases, the condition as you experience it is not dangerous. However, if you do not get the right handling, complaints that are very often repeated can certainly be very disruptive to your daily activities. Therefore, treatment still needs to be done so that complaints do not often recur.
Here are our suggestions:
Check with your doctor or ENT specialist for further examination and treatment. Don't rub your nose excessively, especially with unclear hands. When in a dusty and polluted environment, cover your nose and mouth with a disposable mask.
