Treatment Of Chronic Colds That Never Heal?
Good night … I want to ask if a cold doesn’t heal for many years, what is the cure … thanks
Hello Mochammad Hermanto,
Chronic cold can be caused by several possible causes such as one of them is a condition called allergic rhinitis. Rhinitis itself is a trade or irritation of the inner lining of the nose can cause symptoms such as runny nose, itchy nose, nasal congestion, sneezing and others. Rhinitis is caused by allergies and non-allergic causes. The causes of allergies themselves such as allergen exposure are dust, smoke, plant dust, mold, mites and also increase the risk in patients with other allergic diseases or have a history of atopy, while the non-allergic causes themselves are chemical irritation, air pollution, weather changes, infections, hormone disorders, stomach acid disease, autoimmune diseases and others.
Rhinitis itself can last for years, especially if the exposure to the originator is unknown or unavoidable. For this reason, if it has been going on for a long time, it is necessary to check with an ear and throat ear doctor to assess your condition and treatment starting from treatments to relieve symptoms such as self-care at home by washing or rinsing the nose with saline solution, administering nasal spray for nasal congestion, giving infectious medication if the cause is infection, administration of anti-allergic drugs or also further examination to assess the presence or absence of other triggers or the complications that arise such as sinusitis or middle ear infections.
Prevention is the most important thing so that the onset of symptoms can be prevented by finding out the originator and avoiding it, keeping the environment clean, modifying the living environment so that it has good ventilation, using personal protective equipment such as wearing a mask if in an open environment or a less clean environment and also avoid exposure to other allergen triggers.
