This is Dr. Sharad Mohan from Medicheck Group of Hospitals. Today I am going to tell you something about chronic rhinosinusitis which is a very common problem. Now what does it mean when the doctor says that you are suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis. This is a very common condition. It means inflammation of the nasal passages or sinuses. As the name indicates, chronic means that the duration of the symptoms is at least for 12 weeks and it includes 2 or more of the symptoms which are nasal blockage or rhinorrhea. 2nd is the facial pain and 3rd is loss of smell or reduces sensation of smell. The main thing is to notice here the facial pain may associated with headache or may not be associated with headache and the condition of nasal discharge or obstruction may be associated with postnasal discharge means something sticky substance going down through your throat.

Now it is mandatory to forward at this chronicity of the disease may not be very evitable to the patient. He may be unaware that he is suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis. Now what are the types of chronic rhinosinusitis. Broadly CRS can be divided into 3 main groups i.e. chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis and the 3rd one is allergic fungal rhinosinusitis. Now what are the causes? For a patient to know the main causes are infection or allergy result in nasal polyps or agnomical deformities such as degraded nasal septum. Now the question arises as I said chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis.

What are nasal polyps? Polyps are painless, soft, non-cancerous which is generally associated with chronic rhinosinusitis. And on examination they look like a bunch of grapes. Now the thing is that if the doctor says you are suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis that means there is inflammation of sinuses, nasal passages and association with these polyps. Now coming to the main part that is what are the treatments. The mainstay of the treatment is nasal irritation to wash up the allergens, to wash up the retain secretions. In cases if the medical treatments fails, the doctor may give you an option for an endoscopic sinus surgery. This is the very common surgery now being performed. And you should know about the surgery. Traditionally the sinus surgery involves removing of obstructive or disease sinus mucosa which natural passages of secretion from the sinuses. And this is done endoscopically without any scar outside. 2nd and the new method is benue sinuplasty. In this the passage, the opening of the sinuses is dilated.

It’s an easier procedure. Can be done in out-patient department also. And it generally depends on the patient condition. The thing to notice here that the procedure is new and safe, but it is expensive. And it has got no advantage over the traditional sinus surgery. So, if you are opting for benue sinus surgery, then be careful. 3rd and the most important thing is, post-operation care is as important as the sinus surgery itself. So, please follow religiously whatever the doctors says. Now the main thing you should know is about the risk and the complications of the surgery. Most important symptoms is recurrence. The patient can land up again with the same set of symptoms as he was prior to the surgery and he may have to go again for the surgery i.e. revisional surgery or repeated medical consultation. Regarding the complication of the surgery, one may suffer from pain, bleeding, one may suffer from injury to the eye which may involve loss of vision also. And one may suffer to the injury to the base of skull. There are certain anatomical factors also. For deviated nasal septum, it is important to know that there is no medications for deviated nasal septum. Your deviated nasal septum cannot be cured by any medications. And you have to go for surgery. And this may one of the cause of chronic rhinosinusitis.

Thank you.

Hoarseness - How To Avoid It?

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Hoarseness - How To Avoid It?

Hoarseness in the simplest sense means, 'hoarse voice'. It may be defined as an abnormal voice change. It is experienced in the form of strained, rough, thick, harsh and grating voice. Variations can be felt even in the loudness and pitch of the voice.

Hoarseness is a temporary infection associated with the larynx, which is also known as the voice box in animals as well as humans. Vocal cords are present inside the voice box. Depending on the vibration of the vocal cord, different sounds are produced.

What are the general causes of hoarseness?

Hoarseness may be caused by common cold, viral infection, cough, irritation due to screaming, smoking, allergy, thyroid problem, acute laryngitis and benign tumor. In adults, the stomach asset comes up to the throat causing hoarseness. Heartburn can also be one of the causes.

When hoarseness arises due to common cold and cough, it will last for 2 to 3 days and will subside using cough suppressant and home remedies like salt water gargling, drinking hot milk with turmeric and pepper powder. As cough or cold suppress, hoarseness will also reduce.

When to see an Otolaryngologist (ENT specialist)?

ENT stands for ear, nose, throat. Serious infections in these areas are treated by an otolaryngologist. It is very essential to consult this specialist if hoarseness lasts for more than 2 to 3 weeks; pain in ENT is not due to cold or flu, coughing up blood, lump in the neck.

Evaluation

The medical specialist starts his diagnosis by physically examining the vocal cord. Flexible light weight fiber optic tube scope is also used to visually examine the larynx area. Videotaping, acoustic analysis is also done to study voice irregularities, airflow to guide treatment.

How can hoarseness be treated?

The mode of treatments depends on underlying the cause of the problem. The patient may be advised:

  1. In most cases, hoarseness can be treated just by resting your throat or modifying the use of your voice.
  2. To avoid smoking or passive smoking
  3. Referred to a speech therapist to improve sound of voice.
  4. In case of benign tumor the nodule or polyp is removed by surgery.

How can you prevent hoarseness?

We've all heard the phrase, 'prevention is better than cure'. Alas, it is. Preventing hoarse voice and throat is a much better option than treating it.

Here are some tips on how to prevent hoarseness:

  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid overconsumption of caffeine and alcohol.
  • Consume plenty of water
  • Avoid eating spicy food.
  • Avoid speaking loudly for long intervals of time.

Nasal Allergies - How To Treat It?

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Nasal Allergies - How To Treat It?

Nasal allergies are very common, and as a result, not taken seriously by most people. In most cases you patiently withstand the coughing and sneezing which might last for an entire day and in the process might inadvertently damage your health by choosing to ignore it for the time being.

Here are some of the commonly experienced nasal allergies and what you should do to get relief from them.

1. Runny or stuffy nose
The best option is to just avoid allergy triggers. For example, if pollen is your allergen, then avoid going out during the times pollen count when it is reported to be high. Or, if animals make you sneeze, then make sure to have your hands washed and clothes changed after playing with them. Do not over-use decongestant sprays at all. If these symptoms persist for more than half a week, then it's time to seek your doctor's advice.

1. Uncontrollable Sneezing
Again, the best option is to avoid; but in many cases, it becomes difficult for you to avoid the allergen. In those cases, try antihistamine. If that doesn't work, then you can also go for a nasal steroid spray, but again, make sure to not over-use it.

2. Post Nasal Drip
Usually, you unconsciously swallow your mucus. But, if the mucus quantity increases, it becomes thicker and results in post-nasal drip. It isn't much common, but you can practically feel the mucus dripping into your throat from the back of the nose. It can result in a lumpy feeling in the throat and can cause irritation. You can try drinking more fluids and using a nasal spray to reduce the mucus quantity. If that doesn't work, then it's time to seek doctoral advice.

3. Eyes that itch
Watery eyes that itch are annoying companions of nose allergy and though they might not be a serious hazard for the eyes, you cannot ignore them. Try wearing sunglasses when you go out into a reportedly high-pollen-count weather. It might be a better option to forego contact lenses; they can escalate the entire eye-itching problem. If it becomes too itchy, you can place a cold washcloth over your eyes.

Testing an Allergy

Allergy testing is commonly done by by skin prick test, in order to diagnose the allergens. Once, the allergens are diagnosed, immunotherapy can be stared, which will help in improving the symptoms of and in many cases, it provides complete cure.

Hernia - How To Treat It?

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Hernia - How To Treat It?

When an organ residing in a cavity such as the abdomen tries to push through the muscular layer it resides, it is called as hernia.

Though said to be genetic, hernias can be caused by things such as improper heavy lifting, incorrect posture, or chronic constipation and as a result of surgical complication or injury. Factors like obesity, pregnancy, smoking, chronic lung disease aggravate the severity of the hernia. It is believed that about 27% of all males and 3% of females can have a hernia during their lifetime.

Types of hernias:

Inguinal hernia - The groin is the most common area, where the abdomen pushes through a weak spot in the lower abdominal wall, causing a protrusion into the inguinal canal. More common in men than women.

Hiatal hernia - The abdomen has the diaphragm separating it from the thoracic cavity in the upper border. When it pushes through the diaphragm, a hernia is caused and there is almost always associated food reflux in these cases. Though the most common cause is associated old age, due to muscle weakness, there also are cases of congenital hiatal hernias.

Umbilical hernia - The abdomen finds a weak layer along its length and protrudes through the skin on the stomach. Most commonly seen in babies around the bellybutton, it gradually corrects itself on its own. Quiet rare in adults, seen during pregnancy and in chronic obese people.

Incisional - These are post-surgical, and happen when the organ protrudes through the weakened wall due to surgery. The abdomen is again the most common area and the hernia can happen either onto the external surface or internally, when they are called ventral hernias.
These are the most frequent types, though hernia affects other organs like the spine, brain, appendix, etc.

Treatment - This includes a combination of constant monitoring followed by a decision to do surgical treatment. Hiatal hernias and umbilical hernias can be monitored for a while before deciding on surgery. Inguinal hernias may require surgery earlier in the stage. Post-surgery, a mesh is placed to hold back the tissue in its corrected place. The umbilical hernia in children could be self-limiting. If it does not get auto-corrected in the first year of life, that also would qualify for a surgical treatment.

Dependent on each patient, hernias need to be managed under medical supervision.

Rhinitis - Know Prevention Of It!

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Rhinitis - Know Prevention Of It!

Rhinitis is an irritable medical condition where the mucous lining of a person's nose swells up. The term is more of a category and less of a definitive way to describe something specific. Rhinitis involves a host of other conditions that affect the mucous membranes of your nose. If you were not aware, common cold is also a kind of rhinitis. Rhinitis can cause acute touchiness in the inner lining of the nose leading to continuous discharges from one's nose. It can also lead to clogging of your nose or inflammation of the internal tissues.    

Rhinitis can be divided under two main types; allergic and non- allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis, popularly known as hay fever is caused due to contact with allergens that are usually undamaging. However, in case of non- allergic rhinitis the symptoms take after that of the allergic type but no particular causal factor can be identified.
 
Factors that can increase your propensity to suffer from rhinitis of any kind are:-

1.        Pollen from flowers
2.        Inhaling certain substances can be harmful; smell of certain chemicals is bad too.
3.        Active as well as passive smoking can be detrimental
4.        High levels of air pollution contributes to the risk
5.        Weather conditions affect your health; a windy yet humid weather can aggravate rhinitis. 


Common symptoms of rhinitis can be listed as below:-

1. A person suffering from this condition might catch a cold all of a sudden.
2. People, usually little children, might even face high fevers.
3. Your nose tends to be runny. After the infection subsides, chances of a thick, sticky discharge are more.  
4. Exhaustion is also felt in combination with headaches and teary eyes.
5. The nature of your nasal discharge tells the doctor if you are suffering from an allergy or from a viral infection.

A few preventive measures to aid you against rhinitis:-

a)        Rhinitis can be communicable and in most cases it is so. Therefore a person should not share his or her utensils and other personal things such as towels or handkerchiefs with any other person.
b)        One should not be in close proximity of another infected person. 
c)        Hands are the most common sources of infection. One must wash his or her unclean hands before touching the face.

Colorectal Surgery - What Are The Procedure Of It?

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Colorectal Surgery - What Are The Procedure Of It?

Colorectal surgery is the broad term for surgical procedures performed on the colon, the rectum and the anus. There are various different surgical procedures which fall under colorectal surgery and these are used to treat a vast array of disorders, such as:

1.        Anal cancer
2.        Colorectal cancer
3.        Severe complications related to constipation
4.        Anal injuries
5.        Inflammatory conditions of the gastro-intestinal tract
6.        Congenital defects

Procedures

The surgeries under colorectal surgery are performed after diagnostic tests such as proctoscopy, sigmoidoscopy and defecating proctography. The most common diagnostic test is colonoscopy. These help to identify the origin and nature of the problem and decide which surgical procedure is to be followed. The procedures under colorectal surgery are as follows:

1.        Colectomy
This procedure involves removal of a section of the large intestine. This is known as partial colectomy. In extreme cases, such as advanced cancer or severe gastrointestinal infection, the entire colon is removed and this is called total colectomy. Sometimes, the rectum is also taken out along with the colon and this is called proctocolectomy.

2.        Colonic polypectomy
An abnormal growth of tissues of the inner lining of an organ is known as a polyp. Colonic polypectomy is done to eliminate polyps from the colon and rectum before they become malignant. This can be done endoscopically. Surgery is required in case of large polyps.

3.        Strictureplasty
Chronic or repeated bowel inflammation causes scar tissue to accumulate in the large intestine. This results in the narrowing of the colon. Stricturoplasty removes the scar tissue so that proper flow of digestive contents is resumed.

4.        Colostomy or Ileostomy
A damaged section of the colon is removed and the shortened intestine is then attached to another opening (stoma) in the anterior wall of the abdomen.

5.        Hemorrhoidectomy
This surgical process is used for swollen hemorrhoids or blood vessels which form in the anal canal. Hemorrhoidectomy is extremely effective in removing hemorrhoids but the surgery also involves a number of complications.

6.        Anoplasty
Anoplasty or imperforate anus correction is done to correct birth defects in the rectum and the anus. The structural flaw does not allow the stool to pass properly from the rectum and so it is repaired using surgery.

Salivary Gland Disorder - Know Signs Of It!

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Salivary Gland Disorder - Know Signs Of It!

Remember the sensation similar to that of a warm liquid flooding your tongue when you smell a deliciously baked chocolate cake? Or a freshly baked brown bread early in the morning? That is your saliva. The salivary glands present in the inner linings of the lips, cheeks and the mouth produce saliva. Saliva protects one from tooth decay, keeps the mouth moist and helps in the digestive process. Any disease that affects the saliva gland comes under the domain of ‘salivary gland disorders’.

Causes

There are three salivary glands in humans known as the Submandibular, Parotid and the Sublingual gland. The most common disorder that affects salivary glands is that of ‘blocked salivary glands’. Sialothiasis is a disorder wherein, calcium stones are formed in the salivary glands, which obstruct these glands. Obstruction of the salivary glands leads to an infection called sialadenitis, caused by strep or staph bacteria.

Sjogren’s syndrome is another condition which affects the salivary glands. In this condition, the antibodies in the body target the cells that produce saliva. This occurs mostly in women who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Viral infections are also common; flu virus and mumps are a few examples.

Symptoms

The symptoms of salivary gland disorders are problem specific; for Sialolithiasis, you will feel a painful lump below the tongue, which tends to aggravate when you eat. In case of Sialadenitis, there will be an odorous pus-filled discharge along with a lump beneath the chin. For viral infections, the symptoms will include muscle pain, swelling and fever. Symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome are dry eyes and mouth, joint pain, fatigue and tooth decay.

Treatment

Like the symptoms, the treatments for salivary gland disorders are also problem specific. For salivary gland tumors, surgery is required. If it is a malignant tumor, then radiation therapy will be prescribed which may cause dry mouth syndrome (Xerostomia). For bacterial and viral infections, anti-bacterial and anti-viral medications are required for treatment, respectively. It is also important that you take good care of your oral health for an even more effective treatment. Brushing and flossing your teeth on a regular basis will help keep salivary gland disorders at bay.

Pancreatitis - What Are The Signs Of It?

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Pancreatitis - What Are The Signs Of It?

An inflammation of the pancreas is known as pancreatitis. The pancreas is an organ that produces digestive enzymes. Pancreatitis might start any day and continue for long period and it requires immediate medical attention. It is of two types- acute pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis. Although the treatment usually requires hospitalization, pancreatitis can be easily stabilized and the underlying cause can be treated thereafter.

CAUSES:

Pancreatitis may be caused due to various reasons:
1. Gall bladder stone: The pancreatic duct lies next to the bile duct. The gallstones enter the small intestine after passing through the common bile duct. Often the stones that remain in the common bile duct have a negative effect on the pancreas, which causes a hindrance to the normal flow of the pancreatic fluids, causing pancreatitis. Also a back flow of the bile into the pancreas can cause pancreatitis. 
2. Alcohol: Long time alcohol use also causes pancreatitis. Alcohol can damage the pancreas tremendously causing it to get inflamed.
3. Other causes: Hereditary disorders in the pancreas, cystic fibrosis, high level of triglycerides, and a few medicines may also cause pancreatitis.

Symptoms

1. The first symptom of pancreatitis is abdominal pain: The pain may be sudden or gradually increasing, but is usually aggravated after eating. It is severe and constant, and may continue for a few days. If you are suffering from pancreatitis, you will feel very sick after a sudden attack and you might require medical assistance immediately.
2. Swollen abdomen: Pancreatitis my cause your abdominal area to swell up and become tender.
3. Nausea: If your abdomen suddenly starts paining due to the onset of pancreatitis, you tend to feel extremely nauseous. You might end up vomiting and may also have violent heaves.
4. Fever: The inflammation will cause you to run a temperature, along with a searing pain in your stomach, which will make you feel extremely uncomfortable.
5. Rapid pulse: Pancreatitis affects the rate at which the heart beats, causing a rapid increase in the pulse rate.

Eardrum Rupture - How To Treat It?

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Eardrum Rupture - How To Treat It?

An eardrum rupture or perforation is a little gap or tear in your eardrum and the tympanic membrane. The tympanic membrane is a thin tissue that partitions the canal of the middle ear and outer ear. This layer vibrates when sound waves enter your ear. The vibration proceeds through the bones of the center ear. Since this vibration allows you to listen, your hearing can be affected if your eardrum is harmed. A ruptured eardrum is additionally called a perforated eardrum. Permanent hearing loss could be an end result in some cases.

A ruptured eardrum, similar to thunder; can happen all of a sudden. You may feel a sharp pain in your ear, or an ear infection that you've had for some time all of a sudden leaves. In some cases, the person may not feel any signs of the rupture.

Some of the causes for such a perforation are:

  1. Infection: Ear infections are a major reason for eardrum rupture, particularly in children. Liquids tend to deposit behind the eardrum in such cases.
  2. Exercises: Exercising can bring about pressure changes in the ear and lead to a punctured eardrum. This is known as barotrauma, and takes place when the pressure outside the ear is not the same as the pressure inside the ear. Activities that can bring about barotrauma include scuba diving or flying on plane.
  3. Other activities: Wounds can likewise burst your eardrum. Any injury to the ear or side of the head can bring about a crack.

Diagnosis: Your specialist can use a few approaches to find out whether you have a ruptured eardrum:

  1. A liquid test in which your specialist tests liquids that might spill from your ear from infection.
  2. An otoscope exam in which a specific gadget with a light is used to investigate your ear channel
  3. An audiology exam, in which your specialist tests your listening to range and eardrum limit
  4. Tympanometry, in which your specialist uses a tympanometer to test the pressure changes in your ear.

Treatment: The treatments are as follows:

  • Patching: In the event that your ear does not recuperate by itself, your specialist may fix the eardrum. Fixing includes setting a sedated paper patch over the tear in the film.
  • Antibiotics: Anti-toxins can clear up contaminations that may have prompted your eardrum break. They additionally shield you from growing new diseases from the aperture. Your specialist may endorse oral antibiotics or eardrops.
  • Surgery: In uncommon cases, surgery might be required to fix the gap in the eardrum. A surgical repair of a punctured eardrum is called tympanoplasty.

A cracked eardrum generally recuperates without any invasive measures. Many patients with cracked eardrums encounter just transitory listening problems.

Nasal Obstruction And Blocked Ears - Know The Link!

ENT Specialist, Faridabad
Nasal Obstruction And Blocked Ears - Know The Link!

There is a strong connection between the ears, nose and throat, as any ENT or Ear Nose Throat specialist will be able to tell you. When there is any kind of congestion or obstruction in the nasal passages, one can also feel some effect in the ears with the symptoms going from mild to severe.

So how can nasal obstruction cause clogged ears? Here is our explanation!

-        The Connection: To begin with, let us understand the connection between the ears and the nose. There is an opening that can be found in the back of the nose, which leads into a tunnel called the Eustachian Tube. This tube goes into the ears and creates some amount of pressure when the nasal passages get blocked. This pressure can be felt as clogging of the ears and can usually be eradicated with the help of a pop in the ears. This pop can be brought about by pinching your nose and trying to breathe, or even yawning hard or indulging in some gulping or swallowing motion as well. 

-        Mucosal Swelling: The swelling within the patient's nose usually points at the build up of mucus which can make the nasal lining thicker, thus making the act of breathing that much more laboured and difficult. This obstructs the nasal tract, in plain and simple terms. This swelling usually spreads to the tunnel or the Eustachian Tube, which can become swollen and even shut, consequently leading to a feeling of having clogged ears. 


-       Negative Nasal Pressure: When the pressure inside the nose is built up in a negative way due to the obstruction that makes the patient breathe even harder, then the ears end up taking the pressure. This makes them clogged. This negative pressure usually manifests in the back of the nose where the Eustachian Tube is located, which creates a build up in the ears as well. This can also lead to a ringing pain when a patient tries to suck in air too hard due to the obstruction. 


-       Bernoulli's Principle: If we are to incorporate air in place of fluid and liken the action of breathing with an obstructed nose, with the action of sucking fluid in through an obstructed straw, then the fluid dynamics would apply to this case. As per these fluid dynamics, more rapid flow of fluid can lead to decreased pressure on the surrounding areas. This can be applied to the blocked nose where air must pass through faster and with more fluidity so as to ensure that there is less pressure on the ears, which will keep them from getting clogged. 


Persistent clogged ears and nasal congestion can also point towards an infection and should be checked by a doctor immediately.

This is Dr. Sharad Mohan from Medicheck Group of Hospitals. Today I am going to tell you something about chronic rhinosinusitis which is a very common problem. Now what does it mean when the doctor says that you are suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis. This is a very common condition. It means inflammation of the nasal passages or sinuses. As the name indicates, chronic means that the duration of the symptoms is at least for 12 weeks and it includes 2 or more of the symptoms which are nasal blockage or rhinorrhea. 2nd is the facial pain and 3rd is loss of smell or reduces sensation of smell. The main thing is to notice here the facial pain may associated with headache or may not be associated with headache and the condition of nasal discharge or obstruction may be associated with postnasal discharge means something sticky substance going down through your throat.

Now it is mandatory to forward at this chronicity of the disease may not be very evitable to the patient. He may be unaware that he is suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis. Now what are the types of chronic rhinosinusitis. Broadly CRS can be divided into 3 main groups i.e. chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis and the 3rd one is allergic fungal rhinosinusitis. Now what are the causes? For a patient to know the main causes are infection or allergy result in nasal polyps or agnomical deformities such as degraded nasal septum. Now the question arises as I said chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis, chronic rhinosinusitis without polyposis.

What are nasal polyps? Polyps are painless, soft, non-cancerous which is generally associated with chronic rhinosinusitis. And on examination they look like a bunch of grapes. Now the thing is that if the doctor says you are suffering from chronic rhinosinusitis with polyposis that means there is inflammation of sinuses, nasal passages and association with these polyps. Now coming to the main part that is what are the treatments. The mainstay of the treatment is nasal irritation to wash up the allergens, to wash up the retain secretions. In cases if the medical treatments fails, the doctor may give you an option for an endoscopic sinus surgery. This is the very common surgery now being performed. And you should know about the surgery. Traditionally the sinus surgery involves removing of obstructive or disease sinus mucosa which natural passages of secretion from the sinuses. And this is done endoscopically without any scar outside. 2nd and the new method is benue sinuplasty. In this the passage, the opening of the sinuses is dilated.

It’s an easier procedure. Can be done in out-patient department also. And it generally depends on the patient condition. The thing to notice here that the procedure is new and safe, but it is expensive. And it has got no advantage over the traditional sinus surgery. So, if you are opting for benue sinus surgery, then be careful. 3rd and the most important thing is, post-operation care is as important as the sinus surgery itself. So, please follow religiously whatever the doctors says. Now the main thing you should know is about the risk and the complications of the surgery. Most important symptoms is recurrence. The patient can land up again with the same set of symptoms as he was prior to the surgery and he may have to go again for the surgery i.e. revisional surgery or repeated medical consultation. Regarding the complication of the surgery, one may suffer from pain, bleeding, one may suffer from injury to the eye which may involve loss of vision also. And one may suffer to the injury to the base of skull. There are certain anatomical factors also. For deviated nasal septum, it is important to know that there is no medications for deviated nasal septum. Your deviated nasal septum cannot be cured by any medications. And you have to go for surgery. And this may one of the cause of chronic rhinosinusitis.

Thank you.
