Vasomotor rhinitis - treatment with traditional and folk remedies.
In the practice of an ENT doctor quite oftenpatients with a disease such as rhinitis, or runny nose. Chronic rhinitis can be simple (catarrhal), hypertrophic and atrophic. As a separate disease is considered vasomotor rhinitis, which is treated by an allergist.
Causes of vasomotor rhinitis
Vasomotor runny nose (rhinitis) occursmainly in individuals who have any vegetative disorders (dystonia, endocrine diseases, low blood pressure). In such people, even with slight irritation of the nasal mucosa, a pronounced reaction is observed in the form of its swelling and the appearance of an abundant discharge. Such an irritant is the effect of cold, a sharp smell, chemicals, etc. Seasonal vasomotor rhinitis is quite common. Treatment of it basically reduces to the elimination of the allergen, which is the pollen of flowering plants and cereals, dust mites, dandruff and hair of domestic animals, household chemicals, medicines and much more.
Distinguish allergic and neurovegetativevasomotor rhinitis, but most often both of these forms are combined. In its course, the allergic rhinitis is acute and chronic. The acute form of the disease develops when a sharp transition from a warm room to a cold or when exposed to an irritant agent. Chronic vasomotor rhinitis is more often allergic in nature. It is characterized by seasonality.
Chronic vasomotor rhinitis, treatment and prevention of disease
The main manifestation of the disease is a suddenedema of the nasal mucosa, its obstruction and abundant transparent discharge. Nasal breathing is difficult, the patient's face is often swollen, his voice is nasal. Because of the edema of the lacrimal canal, lacrimation is noted. There are usually no inflammatory changes during examination. Although in young children very often an allergic rhinitis is associated with inflammation, which can go to tracheitis and bronchitis. The child becomes capricious, can not normally eat. Due to the violation of nasal breathing, the oral mucosa is parched, the skin on the lips is cracked. Body temperature remains within normal limits.
Diagnostic measures are reduced to collectioncomplaints from the patient. If necessary, a general blood test is prescribed, in which, in the allergic nature of the common cold, an increased number of eosinophils may be noted. Allergic tests on the skin are also performed to identify a specific allergen. In children, the sampling is performed after five years. When examining the nasal mucosa, one can note its swelling. Unlike the common cold, which has an inflammatory nature, with allergic rhinitis, the mucous membrane of the nose is pale blue.
If vasomotor rhinitis is diagnosed, treatmentis conducted jointly with an allergist. Usually, drugs are prescribed that block the development of the histamine mediator (Suprastin, Tavegil, Diazolin, Fenistil, etc.) and calcium preparations. The course of treatment is 10 days. With severe edema and difficulty in nasal breathing, vasoconstrictive agents are used in the form of nasal drops.
If an allergen is known, it is possible subcutaneousthe introduction of minimal doses of antigen with a gradual increase in its concentration. This contributes to the development of their own antibodies. In more severe cases, according to the indications, an intranasal blockade is made with novocaine.
For children and adults with manifestations of dystonia with prophylactic purpose, hardening and restorative procedures, the reception of multivitamins are useful.
Acute vasomotor rhinitis, treatment with folk remedies
With a cold, it is advisable to wash the nasalmoves with saline. It can be sea salt or a hypertonic solution of table salt. Due to frequent irrigation, mucus and pathogenic microorganisms are removed. The nose can be rinsed with a regular syringe or syringe. Also in the pharmacy network, many solutions are offered in the form of aerosols. Water should be at room temperature. Over time, the temperature can be gradually reduced, thereby tempering the nose.
The bactericidal action is alsoaroma oils. They also exert a tonic effect on the nervous system. Medicinal herbs can be used only in the absence of an allergic component.
