It is expected that the weather will get cooler as the season changes
and the daytime temperature difference inside and outside
will be around 10 degrees in Korea.
However, the air conditioner activity is still high during hot days.
Air conditioner activities inside increases the temperature difference between
indoor and outdoor, and it is easy to get sick and allergic rhinitis.
According to statistics of National Health Insurance Corporation in 2016,
patients with allergic rhinitis last year increased by 14.1% compared with 2010.
Air conditioning can be the major factor in aggravating allergic rhinitis.
Approximately 40% of patients with sensitive nasal blood vessels
and nerves have air conditioner allergies.
Banobagi Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Changhyun Oh said,
"People’s nose has nostril’s hair, mucus, mucous membranes, etc.
and when they breathe, they prevent air pollutants from entering the nose
but people with allergic rhinitis are infected with inflammation inside the nose,
so the possibility for them to breathe through mouth is high”
and “Oral breathing can not only cause a variety of diseases
but can also change the shape of the face," he said.
The main symptoms of allergic rhinitis are confusing with common colds,
but there is a clear difference.
When a cold exposed and is cured within a week,
it literally heals. However, if it goes beyond 10 days,
it can rooting the cold to the body and develops various diseases.
Rhinitis is one of them.
Especially, allergic rhinitis is characterized by continuous sneezing and runny nose, accompanied by nose blockage and itching of eyes, nose, and ears.
In addition to specific allergies, symptoms to sudden temperature or season changes
can be worse as on high season the difference of temperature raised.
As the temperature and humidity become lower,
the nose and organ of mucous membrane become dry,
making it easier for bacteria and viruses to penetrate the body.
If cold winds are blowing, allergic rhinitis patients are suffering from runny nose.
To prevent allergic rhinitis,
it is important to maintain proper humidity, temperature and cleanliness.
In all four seasons, the room temperature should be set at about 25 ~ 28 ℃
and the temperature difference between the outside and the room inside
should be about 5 ~ 8 ℃.
Once an hour, if the situation is difficult, it is better to ventilate for 20 minutes in 2-3 hours.
The dry, cold air from air conditioner can cause asthma
or make allergic rhinitis symptoms worse.
To prevent air conditioner allergies, the air conditioner filter should be cleaned
at least once every two weeks.
This is because molds and bacteria in the filter of the air conditioner float in the air
and can stimulate the nasal mucosa and provoke allergic symptoms.
If allergic rhinitis symptoms or acute rhinitis left untreated
due to the fact that it will naturally be relieved, chronic rhinitis may be worsen.
Chronic rhinitis can lead to secondary diseases such as
malocclusion, jaw joint disorders, headache, and indigestion, etc.
or even leads to secondary illness.
Especially, rhinitis is one of the causes of facial deformity.
Although rhinitis itself does not directly affect chin and tooth deformity, oral breathing
and nose blocking symptoms are continually over-developing the jawbone.
Oral breathing often suppresses the tooth with the tongue
and usually because of opening mouth habit; jaws grow backward than normal growth. Therefore, when the oral breathing habit is prolonged,
the facial shape such as malocclusion, protruded lip, protruding chin, face asymmetry
is likely to be deformed as the jaw joint and teeth growth become difficult.
Dr. Changhyun Oh said
" It is important to treat allergic rhinitis on time
and treat it by drinking plenty of warm water regularly
and always supply a lot of moisture in the neck frequently,"
also "If you have malocclusion, protruded lip, face asymmetry, etc. quiet concerning
caused by chronic rhinitis, we can consider a correcting teeth
