Nasal Disorders: Today nose may be considered as the most abused organ in the body as it has to face the pollutants, clean and filter the warm and moist air before it is sent to the lungs. In Nasa roga adhikara detail description is given pertaining to symptomatology, pathogenesis and management of diseases pertaining to nose.
Nasal Blockage: This may be due to the edema and congestion of nasal mucosa due to allergy or any nasal infection. During pregnancy many women complain of congested nose due to increased blood flow.
Sinusitis: It is the inflammation of Para nasal sinuses because of infection due to cold or allergic episode. It can be acute when it is relieved within two weeks or chronic if it is persisting for several weeks with recurrent attacks. Apart from infection, there may be some other factors which can hamper drainage of sinuses like structural abnormality of the nose, turbinate hypertrophy, polyps, adenoids, diving and swimming, third molar tooth infection, nasal trauma or foreign bodies. The symptoms include nasal discharge which is greenish or yellowish, headache, post nasal drip, peri orbital swelling, heaviness in the head, facial pain, bad breath, fever, sore throat etc.
Snoring: It is the sound that occurs during sleep when the air flow is obstructed in the area where the tongue and upper throat meet the soft palate. It is estimated that 45% of adults snore occasionally and 25% snore habitually. It is more common in males and those who are overweight. The causes are poor muscle tone, long soft palate and uvula, stuffed or blocked nasal passages, adenoids, turbinate hypertrophy, polyps or deviated nasal septum.
Nasal polyps are fleshy swellings that develop in the lining of the nose and para-nasal sinuses (air-filled spaces, linked to the nasal cavity). They are non-cancerous growths.
Polyps vary in size; they may be yellowish-brown or pink and are shaped like teardrops. As they grow, they eventually look like grapes on a stem.
Polyps may grow in one or both nostrils at the same time; they can grow on their own or in clusters.
Large polyps or clusters can cause breathing difficulties and can affect the patient’s sense of smell. They may block the sinuses and cause problems, such as regular infections.
Deviated NASAL septum
The thin wall between the nostrils is made of cartilage and bone, and is called the septum. When this is off-center or crooked, it is called a deviated septum.
A deviated septum may be present at birth, may become crooked during growth, or may be caused by injury to the nose and face.
Patient often does not have any symptoms, but some symptoms include difficulty breathing through the nose, nasal congestion, sinus infection, nosebleed, sleep disorder, headache and postnasal drip.
Some symptoms of deviated septum may be treated with medication. More severe cases of deviated septum may require SPECIAL HERBAL MEDICATION APPLICATION ON THE SEPTUM to repair the septum.
