Herbal Remedies for Deviated Nasal Septum


The nasal septum is one of the walls present in the nose that helps in dividing the left and right of the nasal cavity. The nasal septum is made from bones and cartilage and the quadrangular cartilage helps in making up the front part of the nasal septum. The vomer and ethmoid bones help in making up the paper-thin back part of the septum. The main function of the septum is providing structural support to the nose and regulating the smooth flow of the air through the nasal cavity. One of the commonly seen problems is the deviated nasal septum which seems normal but causes difficulty in breathing. In this article, we are going to talk about deviated nasal septum along with its herbal medicine to manage the symptoms.

What is Deviated Nasal Septum?

The deviated nasal septum is caused when the thin wall present between the nasal passage is displaced from the side. Many people have nasal septum off from their center making the passage of the nose smaller. When the deviated septum is severe then it might cause difficulty in breathing. The additional exposure to the deviated septum can make the nasal cavity dry which causes bleeding and crusting. Obstruction is one of the major symptoms seen in the deviated nasal septum which is caused due to the inflammation of the tissue lining the nose.

What are The Signs And Symptoms of The Disease?

Most of the people who have septal deformity mostly show no symptoms and the patient might not even know that they have deviated nasal septum. Here are some signs and symptoms noted in this including

nose bleeding

1. Nose Bleeding

Due to the deviated septum the nasal area may become very dry which increases the risk of developing nosebleeds.

2. Obstruction of one or both the nostrils

The obstruction caused due to the deviated septum may cause difficulty in breathing through the nostrils. It might be noticed when the patient suffers from an upper respiratory tract infection. The nasal passages swell and become narrow making it difficult to pass air.

3. Facial hair

There are some debates about facial pain caused by the deviated nasal septum. One of the possible causes is the one-sided facial pain that can be caused due to the severely deviated septum in the nose causing pressure.

4. Sleeping on a particular side

Some people might prefer sleeping on a particular side in order to optimize their breathing if one of their nasal passages gets narrowed.

How Deviated Nasal Septum Is Caused?

The deviated nasal septum is caused when the thin wall gets separated from the right and left nasal passage. Here are some of the causes for deviated nasal septum:-

1. Injury

A deviated septum can be resulted due to injury of the nasal septum which causes it to move from its position. In infants, the injury might also be caused during the birth of the child. In adults and children, a wide range of accidents can lead to a nose injury and deviated septum of the nose. Trauma to the nose is most common in people who play sports like wrestling or any other contact sports.

2. Condition at Birth

In some cases, the deviated nasal septum is caused during the development of the fetus.

The normal aging process might also affect the structure of the nasal septum, making the condition worse.

How Deviated Nasal Septum Can Be Diagnosed?

It is important to examine the nose of the patient by spreading out the nostrils of the patient.

The medical history of the patient is also very important for the diagnosis of difficulty in breathing caused due to deviated septum.
