Deviated septum nose swelling

Common Questions and Answers about Deviated septum nose swelling


Avatar f tn The swelling you describe is most likely due to acute inflammation of your nose; not a growth of any kind and unrelated to a deviated septum. It will almost certainly resolve, when the infection resolves. Your severe symptoms suggest that your illness may have been more than the common cold; perhaps even a bacterial infection, in which case the swelling noted may have to be drained.
538090 tn?1213811712 My husband had surgery for his deviated septum along with turbine reduction. It seems he broke his nose in highschool, while playing basketball, and didn't realize it. The tissue grew too much inside his nose and started to cause him to have several sinus infections over the years. The congestion your are getting may be due to the affected tissue swelling because of your flu or bronchitis. The surgery will help clear your breathing passage and give you some relief.
3072999 tn?1356418332 I remember that someone had posted that thu had surgery for a deviated septum. My DH is scheduled for this surgery in Monday, 10/1, and I am wondering what to expect as far as recovery. I've heard up to a week of not doing anything then I have heard within a day r two u r fine. My ex husband had this surgery done but also had more stuff done (his sinuses were punctured and drained because they were so filled) and I was thinking he was back to work (he was a truck driver) in like 3 days...
Avatar n tn Your son could continue to have some swelling of the lining of his nose. Your son’s pediatrician can easily look into the nose and tell if this is the cause of the stuffiness.
Avatar n tn I have recently been diagnosed as having a deviated septum. The deviated septum is the result of having had my nose broke twice. I've had sinus problems for years including the headaches, congestion, and sore throats. I also have problems in the morning, such as mucus in my mouth when I wake up. I have to spit several times to clean out my mouth. I also have nausea for the early part of the day. Could a deviated septum cause all of those problems?
Avatar f tn Septoplasty for deviated septum and coblation of the turbinates My teenage son had this as outpatient surgery two days ago. Day one was pretty rough, so keep current on those painkillers. His doctor's advice; use bags of frozen peas instead of ice packs - they mold to the face better. The cold really helps. He also told me to get an over the counter spray called "simply saline" to spray right in the nose to keep it moist.
Avatar n tn I had some swelling as well, but it was related to my septum being so deviated that my nose was constantly irritated. The best decision I've made in recent memory was to get my nose fixed.
Avatar n tn , morning headaches, anxiety, heart palpitations, uncoordinated food swallow (randomly gasp for air for no reason), constant front head pain/pressure for 3 years,, i have a deviated septum and the ENT also said my nasal mucosa looked inflammed and red, it has always been like this since my head pain started, my nose feels constantly blocked and very DRY not runny.
Avatar m tn I'm sort of leaning towards going for surgery, because the CT scan also showed that I have a deviated nasal septum that has been giving me a lot of breathing problems for a lot of my life (it was misdiagnosed as hay fever), that I would like to have fixed with another surgery - and the ENT specialist said that I can have the 2 surgeries together, which will save me some time and trouble.
Avatar m tn I’m a 28 year old male with acute sinusitis and a deviated septum and my sinus cavities are packed with polyps. When I was younger I had an allergy test done, and I was allergic to a few things, 20 years later, same test I was so allergic to everything they put on me that they had to stop because I swelled up so much. I don’t understand how that could happen that I could be so allergic to so many things in a few years.
Avatar f tn Nosebleeds can occur due to trauma, exposure to warm dry air more common in winter months, rhinitis, infections, vigorous blowing, foreign bodies and deviated nasal septum. Only a consultation with an ENT specialist can help diagnose. During an episode of nose bleeding: the patient must be made to sit upright, this reduces blood pressure in the veins of the nose. Further you should bend forward, this will avoid swallowing blood, which can irritate the stomach.
Avatar n tn ” I went to the doctor and then to an ENT specialist and they said that I have a deviated septum. I was up-front with the doctor about the occasional use of cocaine, but he didn’t seem to think that was the cause of the deviated septum. (I’ve never been hit in the face or had any facial trauma.) But, I’m still convinced that I’ve somehow done some serious damage. What does everyone think? Can someone who’s used cocaine less than 10 times deviate or perforate their septum?
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with enlarged turbinates and deviated septum. It affects my normal breathing (makes my nose stuffy even though I have no colds) especially when i lie down before/after sleep and when i tilt my head down. But when I stand up or take a walk during the day, my breathing is normal. Hope that you can explain on this.
Avatar m tn After a CT Scan they found that I had two bone breaks (one 3mm separation and one 1 mm separation) as well as a deviated septum (my septum was rocked.) From a historical perspective, I broke my nose in a sports related injury at the age of 16 and never received treatment despite breathing problems from a deviated septum. As a result of this most recent injury, my inability to breath, and a crooked nose, I opted for reconstructive surgery.
565430 tn?1272699420 Except its like theres TOO much blood going to my nose swelling the lining and it blocking up. Nasal sprays work for a shot time . But i hate using them too much . There has to be another way.
Avatar m tn The nasal injury could have caused a deviated nasal septum and this could further cause difficulty breathing through the nose. Also, the dry mouth indicates breathing through the mouth. The condition needs evaluation and therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn First off, they will determine if you have an excessively deviated septum which will also contribute to inflammation, and if not, will likely try you on the sprays. Before the sprays, the doctor may suggest you get allergy tests, again to determine if you have allergic or non-allergic inflammation. Yes, it IS okay to take nasal sprays indefinitely ONLY IF they are PRESCRIBED. Do NOT use OTC decongestant sprays; they will actually make your nose WORSE in the long run.
Avatar n tn leave the nose alone..take it from me..
Avatar n tn 12 years ago I had 12 benign nasal polyps removed and major work done on the right side of my sinuses and a corrected deviated septum. The septum became very crooked due to all the polyps. Since that time, I often experience pressure on the right side of face and head when I bend over. I also get weird headaches on the top right side of head that worsen when pressed upon.
Avatar n tn Almost 2 years ago I had sinus surgery for this problem on the reccomendation of my ENT.I had a deviated septum, nodes and siuns infection. After all of that I had one nostril partially collapse. So I have been through the surgery, I still cant breath fully out of my left nostril and I continue to have this unpredictable swelling and red nose.
Avatar f tn Hello, Nose pain can be caused by many causes. A bruised or broken nose, deviated septum, nasal polyps, nose bleed,sinusitis,allergies etc.Your ENT examination is normal so it is unlikely that there is any pathology.Betnesol is used for inflammatory conditions. Inflammation occurs as a result of allergy or irritation .Corticosteroids work by acting within cells to decrease the release of substances in a particular area, thereby reducing swelling, redness and pain.
Avatar f tn a lot of websites explaining septoplasty that i have visited say that there is usually no exteranl swelling or brusing.. i had quite a deviated septum before the op where one nosrtil was completely outturned & blocked off by both septum bone and cartilidge.. i have not received any rhinoplasty.. is this normal & can i assume that my natural smile will return in the upcoming weeks?? can anyone else report there experiences please??

Avatar n tn I've never suffered from allergies, and this condition (which an ENT says is aggravated, but not solely caused, by a deviated septum) isn't accompanied by any classic symptoms of rhinitis--runny nose, mucous, etc. In fact, my nasal passages tend to be rather dry, except for low grade post-nasal drip, usually on the side that feels most blocked. My spouse often reports that I begin tossing and turning around 2 AM, about 3 hours after I retire. By 3 or 4, I'm waking up every 15 min.
Avatar f tn Chronic sinusitis can be caused by infections of the upper respiratory tract, allergies and deviated nasal septum .Other suspected causes include mold or fungi in the sinuses. In your case, you have already had septoplasty, so mold allergy can be an important cause in your case. Treatment includes avoidance of allergen. Maintain/clean dehumidifiers and air conditioners regularly. Air filters of the ac trap allergens, like molds, dust and pollen.
Avatar m tn He saw a slightly deviated septum, a polyp and some crusting. Another ENT after that, saw so much scar tissue he asked me if I'd had surgery!; he also saw scabbing, a polyp, an infection and swollen turbinate. Damage?: When I ask doctor's about the painful pressure during the nasoscopy and suggest damage of the nasal tissues, (mucous membrane) or blood vessels, they usually say 'tissue regenerates'. So why does it still hurt and is now swollen?

Avatar f tn My doctor made the opening to my maxillary sinuses to be about the size of a quarter. He also fixed my deviated septum and cleared out some polyps. After the surgery I had many complications and was unable to breathe out of my nose for quite some time. The doctor said it was due to my nasal passages being super sensitive (I couldn't even use a saline solution without them swelling up.) Also, my nose creates a mucus that is the consistancy of egg whites.
Avatar m tn will said cartlidge grow back if i go easy on my nose from now on? (I thought it took more use to damage one's septum...) will my nose heal and correct itself in time, or is it destined to become more and more crooked? are surgeries for fixing these problems sometimes covered by one's insurance, or are they generally very costly procedure? Let's say I am full of regret, I want to fix the problem and leave this part of my life behind.
Avatar n tn You should always get checked by a doctor because there is a broad spectrum of stuff associated with the nose, but I can tell you alot of people suffer from a deviated septum which will cause a itchy, blocked or runny nose. I have had this problem for a while and don't know if surgery is a good option because of all the things that can go wrong, Try breath right nasal strips- go natural whenever you can!
