Deviated septum: Symptoms affecting one side of the nose suggest a deviated nasal septum and may also be responsible for one side of the throat being affected. It would be prudent to consult an ENT doctor to ascertain the underlying cause and take corrective action. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Wish you good health!
