In the summer months, with the effect of hot weather and the intense use of air conditioners, nosebleeds increase, the nose has a very rich structure in terms of blood vessels. Dry hot air causes the protective layer in the nose to weaken, increasing the tendency to bleed.
- Those with bleeding problems
- People using blood thinners
- Those with blood pressure and nasal allergies are more likely to experience nosebleeds.
If we have nose surgery in the summer, will it bleed too much?
The season does not have a direct effect on the surgery. However, sunbathing and wearing glasses are limited for those who want to combine nose surgery with vacation. Especially those who come from abroad and want to have surgery and have a vacation in our country should reduce their movements a little due to the hot weather after the surgery, drink plenty of fluids, otherwise. Otherwise, they may experience dizziness, drowsiness and fainting due to fluid loss. Hot air should increase fluid and salt loss, blood pressure should drop by expanding vessels, and fluids lost due to sweating and evaporation should be replaced.
Do nose functions deteriorate in hot weather?
Hot air can increase the tendency to bleeding by increasing the dryness of the nose.
How to Solve Nasal Congestion? Should we use nasal spray, sea water?
As a solution to nasal congestion, first use sea water! If it does not open, there may be other structural problems. See a specialist doctor. Trying other sprays masks the problem and makes the solution more difficult. For example; Some nasal sprays are addictive and negatively affect our health.
Can rhinoplasty be done in summer?
It can be done in all seasons. Rhinoplasty patients only need some time. They only need time for the edema and swelling of the skin – subcutaneous tissue to pass.
How does nasal congestion affect our health?
As a result of nasal congestion, we cannot breathe enough while running, climbing stairs, doing sports during the day and our heart gets tired.
Congestion of the nose causes sleep apnea (stopping breathing during sleep) by obstructing breathing at night. Sleep apnea negatively affects the body by causing increased blood pressure, deterioration of heart rhythm, and disruption of sleep patterns. The risk of heart attack and stroke increases due to blockage at night. It creates a tendency to sleep during the day, irritability, forgetfulness, tooth decay, dry mouth in the morning and a bad taste in the mouth.
The solution to all of these is actually very simple, taking a normal breath through the nose.
