The Nasal Wall Is Inflamed And Secretes Mucus?
Good night, I am a 23-year-old metiva. N My nose has been inflamed for several days in red, there is swelling covering the nasal cavity along with a slight, slimy, crusty nose. What is that caused? My head also often hurts … r nI am I’ve read the article if the symptoms of sinusitis are greenish yellow mucus … but my nose is only a little bit like mucus when I have a cold. Please help to explain the cause of my inflamed nose
Hello Metiva, Thank you for the question.
The inflamed nasal wall and phlegm may be caused by:
rhinitis, which is inflammation of the nasal mucus wall. Rhinitis can be caused by infections, allergies, exposure to chemicals
sinusitis, which is inflammation of the sinuses (air-filled cavities under the cheekbones, nose, and forehead). This condition usually occurs together with rhinitis. Nasal mucus that occurs in sinusitis is not always greenish yellow but can also be clear or vaginal discharge. Mucus that changes color is usually a sign of bacterial infection
To ascertain the cause, please check with your ENT specialist. The doctor needs to ask further about this complaint then examine you to determine the cause. Further treatment will be given according to the medical condition that you are experiencing.
You can do the following suggestions:
consume warm drinks or breathe warm steam from a bowl of warm water to relieve breathing
take paracetamol if you experience headaches
avoid chemical exposure
avoid allergy triggers, if you have them
Hopefully this information is useful.
