Deal­ing with a sen­si­tive nose

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SUNBIZ -

GARY’S daugh­ter Ash­ley has been suf­fer­ing from a sen­si­tive nose since she was young. As a par­ent, he wor­ries as Ash­ley doesn’t seem to be get­ting any bet­ter even though she is now 14 years old. Her con­di­tion is worse in the morn­ing when she would sneeze con­tin­u­ously and rub her eyes, un­til they be­come sore. Ash­ley’s con­di­tion af­fects her sleep too. As a re­sult, she finds her­self un­able to fo­cus on her stud­ies. Even though Gary has brought his daugh­ter to a few doc­tors, Ash­ley’s sen­si­tive nose con­di­tions have not im­proved even af­ter a few cour­ses of med­i­ca­tion.

Al­though most peo­ple recog­nise they have a sen­si­tive nose issue, what they do not re­alise is, symp­toms such as a sneez­ing frenzy, runny or blocked nose point to a hy­per­sen­si­tive im­mune sys­tem. Med­i­cally, this con­di­tion is known as al­ler­gic rhini­tis.
