Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, dizziness, runny eyes, and itching in the ears, nose, and throat are most likely indeed caused by rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity). There are many types of this rhinitis. At first glance, if it refers to a series of complaints that you experience, chances are your condition is included in allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis occurs due to the hypersensitivity of the body to allergens, both indoors or outdoors, for example pollen, dust mites, fur or animal fleas, insect feces, and so on. Allergic rhinitis often recurs following certain seasons depending on the allergen, then often heals on its own as long as the allergen triggers are avoided and the patient's immune system is in prime condition. Allergic rhinitis is closely related to genetic factors. Often, people with allergic rhinitis also have close family offspring who also have atopic disease, not always allergic rhinitis as well, but can be asthma or atopic dermatitis.
It could also be that your condition occurs due to other factors, such as non-allergic rhinitis (can be due to infectious rhinitis, vasomotor rhinitis, medical rhinitis), sinusitis, side effects of drugs, nasal polyps, and so on.
Because of the many possible causes of your complaint, if you feel very disturbed due to the complaint, you better check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT specialist doctor. Blood tests, rhinoscopy, x-rays, allergy tests, etc. doctors can also do to establish the diagnosis, as well as determine the best therapy.
At this time, what you should do so that complaints don't get worse and don't recur frequently:
Identify what often triggers your complaints (as we have mentioned above, note, then avoid these triggers
When activities in a dusty or polluting environment, wear a mask
Drink plenty of warm water, eat fruits that are rich in nutrients, rich in vitamin C
Do not smoke
Take a shower with warm water
Always keep the environment clean where you live and do your activities
Be diligent in washing your hands
Do not carelessly take medication if not prescribed directly by a doctor
