What Should Be Avoided By Enlarged Konka Sufferers?
Hi ENT specialist, 4 months ago I had the first surgery to reduce / reduce the swollen / swollen Konka, because it was felt to have interfered with breathing. The surgery also cleansed a small amount of sinusitis from the right area in accordance with the results of citiscan. After the operation everything felt better and my breathing was very relieved. But lately because the weather is not good, I feel short of breath again, if I look manually (through the mirror with the help of light) Konka I enlarged again. My question is, can an enlarged konka recur even after surgery? Then what are the things that should be avoided by sufferers like me and actually sufferers of konka enlarge allergic to anything? Sorry I’m still unfamiliar with this disease, because no family or relatives have ever experienced it, and when relapses really interfere with my breathing, I usually spray with avamys fluticasone-furoate (according to the doctor’s prescription). Thank you doctor. Good luck and always healthy, Aamiin.
Thank you for the question.
Konka nasalis are folds that are formed from the mucus layer in the nasal cavity, whose main function is to warm and moisturize the air entering the nasal cavity. When enlarged, Konka Nasalis can block the airway. As a result, you can experience difficulty breathing, runny nose, snoring sleep, runny nose, head and face pain, olfactory disorders, taste disturbance, sleep disorders, and many other complaints. Many factors can cause enlarged nasal Konka, for example allergies, irritations, and even infections. Inflammation of the sinus cavity often also extends to the nasal concha and makes it swell.
In mild cases, enlargement of nasal conchae is sufficient to be treated by administering drugs and natural treatments, such as avoiding allergen exposure (for example cold, dust, animal hair, pollen, kapok, animal feces), use a mask when active outside the home or outside crowded environment, use a humidifier and air purifier, stay away from cigarettes and fumes, take a shower with warm water, drink plenty of warm water, and irrigate the nasal cavity (ie spraying NaCl liquid into each nasal cavity alternately using a syringe that has been thrown away the needle).
However, if indeed the complaint continues to recur and recur, the doctor may recommend surgery. Postoperatively, it does not necessarily guarantee that your condition will no longer recur or recur. It's just that the potential for recurrence will certainly be smaller after surgery, especially if you are disciplined also undergo the above efforts.
Shortness of breath that you feel back at this time could indeed be caused by a re-enlarged nose Konka. However, it could also be, actually this shortness of breath arises due to other factors, such as allergic rhinitis, non-allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, nasopharyngeal cancer, sinusitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis, asthma, gastritis, excessive anxiety disorders, gastroesophageal reflux disease, panic attacks , and many other diseases.
To be clear, you better check back yourself to the doctor or ENT doctor. Before that, do not just use drugs recklessly, especially those not included in the class of over-the-counter medicines.
Hope this helps ...
