hello, I have a blocked nose and have been for years. maybe since I was in elementary school until now 23 years old. my nose is usually blocked only one hole and always alternating right and left. sometimes also blocked both. What is this disease about?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

In your nose there is a structure called konka or turbinate. There are 3 nasal Konka in each nose, superior Konka, medial Konka, and inferior Konka. Physiologically (normal) this Konka has a cycle where Konka in one nose will experience constriction (shrink), and Konka in the other nose will swell (enlarge). Therefore alternately, one of the nostrils will indeed feel more blocked than the other nostrils. This phenomenon is called the nasal cycle.


In general, this blockage will not be too felt and only felt when one of the nostrils (which are shrinking) is closed. If you have a very disturbing nose, it is important to consider other possible causes of nasal obstruction, for example:

respiratory tract infections
allergic or irritation of the airways
the presence of polyps in the nose
presence of septum deviation or a bent nasal septum
tumors in the nasal cavity or in the nasopharyngeal area
foreign body in the nose

If indeed the symptoms are very disturbing, try to look for anything that triggers the appearance of symptoms of your nasal obstruction and avoid these triggers. You can also check yourself to the ENT doctor so you can see firsthand the cause of your nasal congestion.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
