Is The Nose Bone Bent After The Accident Dangerous If Left Unchecked?
At night, I want to ask 20 years if a broken nose (the cause of a small accident when I was 4-5 years old) would it be okay if I just let it go? Because the longer I feel like breathing is difficult. Because the fracture is bent to the left of the nostril the left one is getting smaller and the opposite one to the right, if you sleep in a certain position, it will be difficult and will wake up because you cannot breathe. like bleeding)
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The nose consists of two holes and among them there is a thin wall consisting of cartilage and hard bone that borders it. If due to genetic abnormalities, growth abnormalities, accidents, blows or a certain event, this wall becomes bent, the condition is called nasal septum deviation.
In people with nasal septum deviation complaints, the nose looks crooked, tends to tilt, the holes are not as large, and certainly not symmetrical. Although other people may be unconscious because this slope has a lot of severity, usually the person who himself is aware of it, especially if the slope occurs not from birth.
At first glance this condition does not seem to interfere because it is only tilted. But in reality, many conditions can occur if septal deviation is not treated, such as:
Prolonged inflammation of the sinus cavity or chronic sinusitis
Can only sleep in certain positions
Loud breathing when sleeping
So in your case, because you have already experienced a variety of related symptoms, our advice is that you should consult your ENT doctor for further treatment. Your doctor will insert a tool into your nose to see the inside of your nose, and for initial treatment, you may be given oral medication to relieve symptoms. If the complaint does not improve or if from the beginning it has been seen that the slope is severe, then your ENT doctor will recommend surgery. Meanwhile, don't pick your nose too hard, don't sneeze too hard, take care of your health and take regular breaks. So, hopefully answering your question.
