Can you tell me can I have nasal walls removed?

Can you tell me can I have nasal walls removed?

Yes: I do not know of any medical reason to have the nasal walls removed if your nasal passages are normal. Chronic cocaine use will erode the nasal passages. Not sure if that applies to you. An Ear, Nose and Throat specialist would be the physician of choice to see.

Why do I have a nasal drip constantly every morning

NOT UNUSUAL: This time of the year, depending on where you live, moning due and rapid evaporation as the day warms up triggers nasal congestion, which triggers sinuses to drain in the back of your throat.

Nasal comfort - does it really work; should I try it?

Nasal comfort - does it really work; should I try it?

Yes, but: Yes, nasal lavage helps with many nasal symptoms including nasal drainage, allergy, secretions, sinus drainage, etc. Nasal Comfort I think is no longer sold. Any OTC nasal lavage product would do the same. If symptoms persist, see ENT doc. Don't overuse decongestant nasal sprays.

Scented candles trigger my nasal issue but my family won't stop using them, what should I do?

Please ask your: Family to read my response. If the scented candles make you ill (and many people are sensitive to them) then other people's use of them in your presence is in my opinion akin to abuse. Your family can discuss this with the family doctor to learn more. I am sorry that people in your home aren't listening to you.

How can nasal intubation work?

How can nasal intubation work?

Very well!: Sometimes a breathing tube needs to be placed through the nose when surgery is done on the jaw or facial bones, for example. The tube is gently introduced through the nose down into the windpipe (trachea) to help the pt breathe during surgery. It works the same way as a tube put in via the mouth to provide an airway for a pt under anesthesia.

What would doing a nasal swab show?

Germs you carry: The nasal membranes are a luxurious environment for germs to grow and end up on your fingers where they are spread to the environment. Screening nasal swabs is one way to find a source for staph or other germ that may not infect the carrier but might cause problems with the rest of their family.
