Many people who suffer from allergy issues often believe that more dry climates, such as the desert, will help relieve their symptoms. While it may help some people, a more dry climate may actually make things worse!
Nosebleeds can be caused by many things such as physical trauma, allergies, or underlying diseases that affect the blood. While nosebleeds are usually minor, it is still important to properly treat them otherwise they can cause major issues.
The sense of smell isn’t something we typically take for granted, but it can affect everyday life when it’s gone. If you can’t smell, it may be more difficult to taste food, and may even lead to dangerous situations if you can’t detect smoke or a gas leak.
While it is possible for someone to permanently lose their ability to smell, it is much more common for it to only happen for a period of a few days to a couple of weeks. Anosmia (the complete loss of smell) and hyposmia (partial loss of smell), affect thousands of Americans each year.
During the summer months around Savannah, and Pooler, a chorus of sneezes is something that you’ll often hear when walking through a park or neighborhood. Most of the time, the automatic response is “oh, it’s just my allergies.” While that can certainly be true, there’s much more to a sneeze than just that.
Most adults know that they need to visit their optometrist to get regular vision tests and the dentist to get cleanings twice a year, but when is the last time you went for a checkup on your hearing? Since your ability to hear can change over time, it can be difficult to notice changes until it’s too late.
Your nose is almost constantly producing mucus. In fact, it makes approximately a quart of it each day. Mucus performs necessary functions including trapping bacteria and moistening the airways, but overproduction can lead to some annoying side effects. Do you notice yourself coughing certain times of the day, or getting a scratchy throat? It could be post-nasal drip.
When the weather turns cold, many people experience pain or discomfort in their ears, nose and throat. People often confuse symptoms caused by cold weather with illness or infection (or vice versa). It is important to know how cooler weather can affect your respiratory health.
