How severe is my deviated septum? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
The Causes of Nasal Obstruction Are Multifactorial
1) Narrowing of the nasal passageways
2) Inflammation in the nose secondary to medical problems
To best understand the cause of your nasal obstruction, you need to see a rhinoplasty or nasal expert. They will ask you many question to find out if you have medical issues (allergies, sinusitis) and do a full exam to see if you have a narrow nasal airway. Some causes of a narrowed nasal airway are:
1) Deviate Septum
2) Turbinate Hypertropy
3) Narrowed Nasal Valves
I hope this helps
