Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A nose that is often itchy, sneezing, runny, accompanied by itching in the eyes, headache, and pain in the jaw area may indicate sinusitis, or inflammation of the sinus cavity. The sinus itself is a cavity located behind the forehead, nose and cheekbones. This cavity serves as a place for sound resonance and humidifies the air that enters the respiratory tract.
Inflammation of the sinus cavities, which is generally triggered by infection, can cause mucus to accumulate, causing various complaints as you experience, namely in the form of pain in the face, head, and can spread to the jaw, runny nose, nasal congestion, smell disorders, taste problems , sneezing, itchy eyes, and so on. There is a blockage at the exit that connects the sinus cavity with the nose, for example due to rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa), deviation of the nasal septum, polyps (benign tumors of the uterine mucosa), cancer, foreign body ingress, or infection (including those characterized by the appearance of a lump pain in your nose) can exacerbate this inflammation. In addition, people who have a history of allergies, including allergies to cold temperatures, dust, or other allergens can also experience more severe and frequent recurring complaints.
There are several types of infections that may trigger a lump in your nasal cavity at this time, including acne, folliculitis, shingles, warts, impetigo, and so on. In addition to infection, it may also occur due to irritation, benign or malignant tumors, and other causes.
In order to distinguish each of these possibilities, you should check yourself directly with an ENT specialist. If it is true that the doctor suspects that the lump you are experiencing is due to infection and your other complaints are caused by sinusitis, the doctor can perform further tests, such as X-rays, CT scan, nasal endoscopy, and so on. The treatment given later can be in the form of administering drugs, or even surgery, according to the cause of your complaint.
In the meantime, you can first go through the following efforts:
Not holding or picking up the bumps on the nose excessively
Take paracetamol first so that the pain in your head, jaw and nose improves
Avoid substances that are prone to trigger allergies, for example cold, dust, smoke, pollen, animal dander, and so on
Drink lots of warm water and foods rich in vitamin C
Use a nose mask to avoid pollution and other substances that can irritate the respiratory tract
Do not smoke
Hope this helps ..
