The Palate Feels Painful, With A Blocked Nose?
Hello, I am a doctor from the sky. I often experience this … 😊 Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Pain that is felt mainly in the area of the palate, accompanied by nasal congestion and sensations such as heat or fluid in the back of the nose close to the big mouth may indicate that you have sinusitis, which is inflammation of the sinus cavity. As is known, the sinus cavity itself is a cavity filled with air that is connected to the nasal cavity and is used primarily as a means of sound resonance and to moisten the air entering the airways. This inflammation of the sinus cavity can occur when the ducts that connect it to the nasal cavity are blocked, such as infection, foreign body entry, allergies, anatomical disorders of the nasal cavity, benign or malignant tumors, and so on. Due to inflammation of this sinus cavity, pain can also appear, snot produced more and more thick, itchy, hot, warm, can even appear coughing, olfactory disorders, recurrent nosebleeds, smell bad, fever, and many other complaints. Pain around this sinus can also spread to the head area around it, not to mention the area of the palate.
In addition to sinusitis, your complaints may also arise due to other factors, such as pharyngitis, dental abscesses, dental impaction, infections in the oral cavity, canker sores, Behcet's disease, psychological disorders, benign or malignant tumors, nerve disorders, and so on.
If it's true that your complaint is very often repeated, that means you can no longer silence it. Go see yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor to be given the appropriate treatment. Some types of drugs, to investigations (such as x-rays, nasal cavity endoscopy, CT scans, blood tests) can also be done by a doctor to be able to provide you with targeted treatment.
At home, your complaints can be minimized first by:
Take paracetamol medication or rinse with warm salt solution when the palate feels painful Diligent toothbrush, continued by rinsing using warm salt solution Stay away from substances that might make you allergic Expand drink Do not over-consume foods and drinks that are cold, oily, penas and hard Use a mask Do not hold the area of your nose and mouth, except with clean hands that have been washed with running water and antiseptic soap. Get plenty of rest, exercise, and eat fruits. Don't smoke. Hope it helps.
