Risks from Perforated Septum if Left Untreated?
I always have an abnormal amount of dried mucus, crusting and scabbing in my nose and it's always stuffed. Thus, I'm forever picking my nose to alleviate the symptoms. I went to an ENT and he said I have a perforated septum and has ordered a cat scan to get further information before he discusses what to do next.
I'm freaking out. I'm assuming my nose picking caused the perforation. What are the dangers if left untreated? Is there hope for my nose to ever be normal? What are my treatment options? Can treatment stop the crusting, scabbing and stuffiness? All info helpful!
