Struggling to Breath Through Nose?

You sound like you are having progressive breathing issues which would be best taken care of by first having a thorough exam inside and out by a board certified surgeon who specializes in nasal surgery. Bleeding can occur for many reasons such as prior trauma, dryness, polyps or some type of vascular lesion. Again, a good examination will help to discern which one it is. It sounds like part of your septum is displaced and protruding and would need to be fixed. Find a respectable board certified nasal surgeon and have an examination and they will guide you through the process.

Difficulty with Nasal Breathing

You need to see an ENT or facial plastic surgeon to examine you and determine the cause of your nasal obstruction. Medical treatment may improve function but will not change the appearance of your nose.
