Air conditioning in the summer

Surely it has happened to anyone waking up in the morning with a sore throat after having slept all night with running air conditioning. The use of these devices prolongs the neck problems in summer, as the Spanish Society of Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery and Facial and Neck Surgery announced.

The sudden temperature changes from the air conditioner to the open road favor the occurrence of pharyngitis, laryngitis or hoarseness. The ear, nose and throat specialists advise against prolonged use of the air conditioners and recommend the use of humidifiers.

The throat inflammation (pharyngitis) is the most common reason for a doctor’s visit, even in summer. At this time of the year, various factors come together that are responsible for the inflammation of the throat. These are mainly temperature fluctuations and the drying out of air by the air conditioning systems.

If you have complaints in the neck area do not hesitate to consult the ENT specialist of your choice in the Marina Alta. We are here to attend you.
