Have a deviated nasal septum, don't want surgery. Been causing post nasal drip & bad breath for years, taking nasal spray & antihistamine. Not helping.

Reconsider: A deviated nasal septum can cause a lot of problems. My patients who have the surgery almost all wish they had it done sooner. Get in to see an ENT (maybe get a second opinion). He/she can give you more information pertinent to your case. Bad breathe and nasal drip can be a sign of sinusitis and if so, often needs antibiotics. So, a visit to a good ENT will be worthwhile. ...Read more
