Hay fever, or allergic rhinitis, is a kind of nasal inflammation produced by the immune system’s reactivity to allergens in the air. Runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, red, itchy, and watery eyes, and swelling around the eyes are all signs and symptoms of this condition.
Adenoids help your body filter out infections, but if they become overburdened with bacteria, they can become sick. As a result, they become inflamed and swollen. The medical word for this condition is adenoiditis. It primarily affects children, though it can also affect adults.
Asthma is a condition in which your airways shrink and swell, resulting in the production of excessive mucus. Coughing, a whistling sound (wheezing) as you exhale, and shortness of breath may occur as a result of this.
A viral infection of the nose and throat causes an allergic cough and cold (upper respiratory tract). Even if it doesn’t feel that way, it’s usually harmless. Viruses can cause a common cold to develop. Healthy individuals should expect to catch two or three colds per year.
Bronchitis affects the lining of your bronchial tubes, which move air to and from your lungs. Bronchitis patients cough up thicker, darker mucus on a regular basis. Bronchitis is a condition that can be either acute or chronic.
Laryngitis is a condition in which the vocal cords become inflamed. To produce the voice, the vocal cords open and close slowly and steadily. When a person has laryngitis, the voice cords enlarge. The flow of air down the neck is altered as a result of this.
Sinusitis, also known as rhinosinusitis, is an inflammation of the mucous membranes that line the sinuses, resulting in thick nasal mucus, a clogged nose, and facial pain. Other signs and symptoms include fever, headaches, a bad sense of smell, a sore throat, and a cough.
Soft, noncancerous growths on the lining of the nose or sinuses are known as nasal polyps. They grow in clusters, much like grapes on a stalk. Like teardrops or grapes, they hang from the ceiling.
Tonsillitis is a bacterial or viral infection affecting the tonsils. Common symptoms include a sore throat, swollen tonsils, trouble swallowing, fever, and swollen neck glands. Tonsillitis is most frequent in children, however, it is uncommon in toddlers.
