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

Damage Is Possible: Cocaine users often snort powdered Cocaine up their nostrils so that the drug can be quickly absorbed by fine capillaries which line the nasal passages.

Can someone tell me how long will it take for a cocaine user to show brain and nose tissue damage?
Injury to the nasal passages from 'snorthing' will depend on frequency of use, with what the Cocaine was cut and the health of the tissue in the nose. The irritation and erosion is visible.
The brain effect is not visible and totally unpredictable. Amount and time of exposure are the critical factors that turn off the brain factory that makes dopamine. Once closed we do not know how to restart. ...Read more

They may be very suspicious but would have other explanations. A good physician would feel free to ask if this is suspected. It is so much better not to lie about this. Especially to your physician.

Affects of binge cocaine use (snorting) 2-3x a week over the period of a year on the body/nose And ways to repair/ get healty after quitting for good.
No: I would consider other causes. See your doctor. ...Read more
No: Cocaine or other drugs (even sniffed) would not do this. If you have a sore throat, that's probably the cause and both this and the enlarged nodes should clear pretty soon on their own. If not, and especially possible enlarged nodes persist more than 1-2 weeks, see a doctor and get it checked out. ...Read more
Depends: It is unlikely that the cocaine in and of itself would cause lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy); however, whatever other substances are within the administered drug could very well do so. Use of cocaine is incredibly dangerous, not only for the well known effects and addiction issues, but also because of the co-administered materials "cut" with this drug of abuse. ...Read more
I have damaged my nose from cocaine use. When looked inside it appears to be burned. Whitish green patches along septum to deep inside used polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin)?
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? There may be nose transplants available by plastic surgeons these days but do you really want to go that route? Your ulceration problem may need more aggressive treatment strategies. Also, you may further damage things if you self treat. See your DOC! ...Read more
