Have you lost your sense of smell? Do you constantly breath through your mouth? Anything that causes increased swelling within the nose can cause nasal congestion. Allergies and viral illnesses are the most common culprits, although there are many other disorders and medicines that will result in nasal congestion. In addition, various anatomic deformities, such as a deviated nasal septum, can obstruct airflow through the nasal passages
Chronic nasal congestion can be a frustrating problem that significantly interferes with your quality of life. When standard medical treatments fail, there may be surgical options that will correct the underlying problem and restore airflow through the nasal passages. The physicians at Virginia Ear, Nose, & Throat Associates can thoroughly evaluate the nasal airway, understand and correct the underlying problem and restore your nasal breathing.
