“As the weather turns cold, some people inexplicably have symptoms such as stuffy nose, itchy nose, runny nose, sneezing, upper palate, itchy eyes, headache, dizziness and so on. Many people think it’s a cold, but it’s not good to take medicine or injection. In fact, it’s not a cold but rhinitis. It may also be nasal polyps and sinusitis.” Autumn is a period of high incidence of rhinitis, especially. Once the rhinitis is not controlled correctly and timely, it may cause complications such as sinusitis, nasal polyps, and even cancer.
Experts remind that in order to effectively prevent rhinitis, first of all, we need to improve the human body’s resistance, because when the resistance drops, the nasal mucosa’s regulating function becomes poor, the defense function is low, and the virus will invade by taking advantage of deficiency, so we need to avoid various factors that may lead to the decline of resistance, such as excessive fatigue, insufficient sleep, cold, drinking, smoking, etc.; we can insist on physical exercise, especially cold resistance training, such as morning running Or wash your face with cold water, increase outdoor activities and breathe cold air on the premise of keeping warm, which can improve the cold resistance of respiratory tract, and is also helpful for the treatment of upper respiratory tract diseases and other chronic diseases; exercise more, promote blood circulation and enhance the disease resistance; in addition, in this season, you can wear masks when you go out, and often open windows and ventilate indoors to actively prevent colds.
In autumn and winter, people suffering from allergic rhinitis should strengthen the protection of the nose and keep the nasal cavity clean at all times; try to reduce outdoor activities and avoid contact with allergens; avoid cold, raw, cold, spicy and other irritant food, and eat fish, shrimp, crab and other seafood food; quit smoking and limit alcohol, reduce the irritation of the nasal mucosa, and try to avoid entering and leaving places with dirty air.
