I've been feeling something deep in my right nostril and smells musty for the past few months. I also feel pressure in my right eye. Possible causes?
Infection vs. Other: Months duration could indicate infection (bacterial or fungal). Chronic Sinusitis would be near top of the list. Also consider a lodged foreign body (like a bead, other). Lastly, some rare conditions such as Wegener's Granulomatosis or even underlying tumor can cause those symptoms. I would see your doctor (or ENT). Consider imaging (CT scan) and direct visualization -- then treat accordingly. ...Read more

I used fluticasone nasal spray caused me not to smell nose dry doc said nostrils swollen tried saltwater nose feels heavy air feels obstructed?
See ENT: It is unusual for fluticasone to cause dryness in the nose. You need to make sure that you are aiming the spray towards the lateral side of the nose and not straight in. Consider trying other nasal steroid options. If the problem persists, see an ENT. If you were much older or have had turbinates reduced, then I would consider dryness as the issue and use saline spray instead. ...Read more
Obstruction: It is normal for congestion to alternate from one side of the nose to the other. This is called the autonomic nasal cycle. If it is a fixed obstruction it could be due to several causes such as septal deviation, turbinate hypertrophy, trauma, scarring, infection, sinusitis, tumor and more. Occasionally the use of decongestant sprays/steroids may help for temporary relief. If it remains, see md. ...Read more

Mean, Mean Nicotine: I'd bet what they're worried about is the effect of the nicotine in tobacco. It constricts small blood vessels, which restricts blood flow & thereby slows healing. Without the proper nourishment the new tissue would start to die & the healing process would turn into a clean-up operation. A few whiffs of candle smoke won't hurt; even a few whiffs of tobacco smoke, so don't worry; just avoid nicotine ...Read more
