Chronic Nasal Obstruction

Nasal congestion or difficulty breathing out of the nose is a very common problem that can lead to difficulty eating, sleeping and speaking. It can also worsen allergies and colds.

Most nasal obstruction is caused by swelling of the nasal tissues, nasal polyps, deviation of the nasal septum, and rarely, nasal tumors.

Treatments include medicines (pills, nasal sprays), allergy injections, and intranasal injections. If medical management does not work, then surgery should be considered. In-office surgeries include turbinate reduction and polypectomy.
