What is the difference between a deviated septum and nasal bone fracture?

One is inside

Epiglottitis
A deviated septum refers to crooked or displaced bone and cartilage inside the nose. This can cause blockage of the nasal passages. The nasal bones are on the outside of the upper part of the nose. Both or either the nasal bones and the nasal septum can be broken. Broken nasal bones may cause the outside of the nose to become crooked.

What is the difference between a deviated septum and a nasal bone fracture?

Different parts

Bones
The septum in the cartilage that separates the inside of the two nostrils. It can be bent or deviated. The top part of your nose from the middle of your brow to about half way down your nose is the bony part. A nasal fracture would likely be in this area.

How do a deviated septum and a nasal polyp differ?

Structures

Deviated_nasal_septum
The septum is a cartilage and bone structure inside your nose that separates the sides. It may be bent and block breathing. A nasal polyp is a soft growth that usually originates in the sinus, is caused by inflammation and may also block breathing. They can occur together.

Will using a nasal spray help treat a deviated septum?

No

Deviated_nasal_septum
A deviated nasal septum is crooked or displaced cartilage and bone inside the nose. This can only be corrected with surgery. Noses sprays may provide some temporary relief but no cure. Remember, over the counter nose sprays should only be used for a few days at a time as they can cause a rebound effect making the nose more blocked and can damage the inside of the nose

Dr. Amy Shah answered:

Is nasal steroid safe for a person with deviated septum?

Likely Yes

Steroid_nasal_spray
Point your nasal steroid outwards (away from your septum) when you use. That is advice I give to everyone using nasal steroids whether or not they have a deviated septum.
