In adults improper drainage is not as likely, but can still lead to infection. Air pressure usually builds when the barometric pressure changes quickly, such as an impending storm or air plane trip.Stuffy noses are often the result of irritated capillaries or small blood vessels in the nose. The irritation can come from anything from allergies to minor infections to a change in blood pressure. Inflammation can be lessoned by anti inflammatories like anything from cold air to acetaminophen to doctor prescribed cortisone, etc.

  • Answer: This can be a difficult problem to deal with. a stuffed up nose is most often do to inflammation of the nasal passages. This can happen in response to an upper respiratory tract infection, or as a result of reaction to an allergy. Crustiness of the nose occurs when the drainage coming from the sinuses dries and becomes hard and irritating. Bloody noses can have several different causes. The most common reason they occur is trauma to the anterior nasal plexus of blood vessels. If you have dried sinus discharge in your nose and you repeatedly rub or pick your nose, this can result in bleeding. Recurrent bloody noses can also be due to blood clotting disorders. For this reason, it is important for you to bring this issue up with your doctor. I think the best physician for you to see first about this issue is your primary care physician. After a detailed history of your symptoms and a thorough physical exam, your doctor will be able to determine what is causing your stuffy nose. Perhaps simple treatment of environmental allergies can reduce the amount of swelling and discharge from your nose and protect it form bleeding. If your issues are more complex, then you may warrant referral to an ear nose and throat specialist.

  • Answer:
    Nose jobs don�t fix stuffy noses, but they are often performed in conjunction with other internal nasal procedures that help with blocked nasal passages and sinus trouble.
    Many people experience blocked nasal passages and trouble breathing due to crooked septums and nasal tissue swelling. Since an outer nose defect may accompany septum issues (due to trauma to the nose) many doctors will combine nose jobs with a septoplasty or turinoplasty, which aligns the septum and reduces nasal swelling.
    A septoplasty aligns the septum to the midline. A septum is a wall of cartilage that divides your nasal cavity into two nostrils. If your septum is �deviated� or sits off-center, you may experience less sinus drainage, which can cause chronic sinus infections. Candidates for septoplasty have these symptoms:
    • Blockage of one or both nostrils
    • Nasal congestion, sometimes one-sided
    • Frequent nosebleeds
    • Frequent sinus infections
    • At times, facial pain, headaches, postnasal drip
    • Noisy breathing during sleep (in infants and young children)

    Source: The American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
    The procedure includes an incision through the nose, thus leaving no visible scars. A septoplasty is generally not recommended in young children or teenagers as their septums are still growing until the age of 18.
    A turbinoplasty reduces turbinates, which is the tissue that causes swelling and nasal congestion. Candidates for turinoplasty have frequent nasal congestion and blockage that isn�t elevated by decongestants or steroid nasal sprays. A surgeon performs a turbinoplasty using laser instrumentation.
  • Answer: This is depends if you want to take medicine. You can take medicine with antihistamine in it, like Tylenol Cold and Sinus, which clears up nasal and sinus passage ways. Also, drinking plenty of CLEAR liquids and vitamin C is good for the immune system. If you are a smoker or are in constantly congested areas, flem can build up and cause blockage. Allergies are also a cause in which you would perhaps take benadryl or whichever medicine you prefer.
