What is Nasal Obstruction?

Nasal obstruction happens when one or both nasal cavities become blocked and make it difficult to breathe through the nose. There are several causes that can prevent airflow through the nose.

The runny nose due to a cold causes nasal congestion.

However, when the symptom persists after the discomfort goes away or appears for no apparent reason it may be the product of other more serious condition that should be treated by an otolaryngologist.

Nasal obstruction can be caused by different problems such as: deviated septum, nasal polyps, rhinitis, adenoids, enlarged turbinates, cysts, tumors, sinus infection, etc.

Is important that if you think you suffer from any of these conditions you should go to a doctor who will identify the main reason and recommend a specific treatment.
