Could cocaine make your nose bigger?

Could cocaine make your nose bigger?

No: but if it causes inflammation, that could cause some temporary swelling inside the nose. If people snort cocaine intranasally, it can cause damage to the nasal septum, the cartilage between the two nostrils, and in severe cases, a hole can form and ultimately the nose can collapse, which can have the appearance of a larger flattened nose (called a 'saddle nose deformity). ...Read more

GET HELP. ...Read more

Need examination: The body's very resilient. First & most importantly...tell me about your intention on doing any more damage to your nose if you get this one fixed?

Also, you may further damage things if you self treat. See your DOC! ...Read more
