Hi my left side nostril is always closed.I can't breath through that hole. I can't sleep on my right side because I can't breath. Only sleep on left.
My right nostril i cannot breath out of for about 2 months now sometimes it switches sides but there's no mucus & no pain. What can I do to open it up?
Swollen tissue: Nasal obstruction that comes and goes but can't be blown out as mucus is typically swollen tissue. The swelling may be from several causes, most commonly allergy. Other reasons include infection, overuse of decongestant sprays or even metabolic causes like thyroid disease.

Cant breath well into my right nostril. Had a surgery for it but the surgical structure collapsed and now it feels even more blocked. What can I do?
My suggestion: Return to your surgeon or find a surgeon confident and experienced in revision nasal surgery. The nasal framework can always be rebuilt, unless there is signficant injury to the overlying skin. Make certain that the surgeon examines all the possible causes of nasal obstruction - deviated septum, crooked nose, aging/collapsing nasal cartilages, & poor tip support. In the meantime, try a nasal strip. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
