Doctor :   Hi\
User :   Hello Doctor
User :   how are you?
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   do you remember of me ?
Doctor :  
I am fine.thanks..
Doctor :  
I do remember you.
User :   I almost always talked with Senior Dentist
User :   that's You, ESteemed Doctor!!!!
User :   God Bless You always , from me and my mother!
Doctor :  
How can I help you this time?
User :   I've been quite busy because of job, so I couldn't came often in c hat
Doctor :  
User :   I'd like asking You something about a quite unusual thing about my nose
User :   my mother has a little instrument to smooth nails
Doctor :   Ok
User :   it's such a little instrument
User :   used to make nails more thin
Doctor :   Ok
User :   some days ago, I noticed that my mother used this on hand skin
Doctor :  
User :   in a place where skin was little bit with thikness
Doctor :  
User :   so , please, don't chide me, Doctor...
User :   I tried to pass the little instrument on my nose skin
Doctor :  
User :   just in the very point where I banged in the roll-up shutter
Doctor :  
User :   and I must say that with my great surprise the thickness seems to be more thin
Doctor :  
User :   of course I talk about few tenth of a millimeter
User :   so I'm using it sometimes
Doctor :  
User :   but, Doctor, it could be that the instrument functions really on nose skin too, or is it maybe just an impression of my mind?
User :   You know, maybe just like an auto-suggestion
Doctor :   Even if that instrument function on the nose skin, I would not recommend you to do that.
Doctor :  
The are of the nose just above the mouth is described as the dangerous area of the face.
Doctor :  
It means that if there is a infection there,
Doctor :  
there are high chances that the infection can spread to the brain and cause serious problem.
Doctor :  
This happens because of the presence of high vascularity.
Doctor :  
So you may be introducing infection.
User :   oh....
Doctor :  
So I seriously would not recommend you to continue what you have been doing.
Doctor :  
Have you followed?
User :   oh, I see
User :   no, just done ti twice
User :   done it twice
Doctor :   If you have had no problems now, it may not have happened
User :   it's the exact instrument w e have
Doctor :  
Let me have a look at it.
User :   thanks
User :   I used the buffee accessorie
User :   to smoothe and polish
Doctor :   I do not understand Italian language, but that is ok.
User :   thanks so much, Esteemed Doctor
User :   sorry, I didn't find the English link
Doctor :  
Any instrument which has not been kept sterilised may have infectious materials on it.
User :   oh, I s ee
Doctor :  
Though I can see that the instrument has a smooth surface,
Doctor :  
it can some times introduce trauma to the mucosal surface of the nose.
User :   Doctor, but the nasal bones are just carthilagin or real bone?
User :   I mean like hand bones or arms bones?
Doctor :  
The area just visible at the nostril is soft cartilage.
User :   oh
Doctor :  
It does contain plenty of small blood vessels, which are in direct connection
User :   and in the medium part of the nose which is?
Doctor :  
to the blood vessels of the brain.
User :   to the brain?
Doctor :   Yes these are branches which come directly from few of the blood vessels of the brain.
User :   really so much complex, Doctor
Doctor :  
The anterior 2/3 (outer most part)of the septum is soft cartilage.
Doctor :  
The dangerous area is described to that part that is
User :   oh, now I see why is so delicate
Doctor :  
just visible at the nostril.
User :   I banged just at the middle part of the nose
Doctor :  
So any mild trauma and infection in that area can spread rapidly.
User :   Good heavens!
Doctor :  
It can lead to the a potentially dangerous infections.
User :   I see...
Doctor :  
Hence I would not recommend you to continue with this habit again.
User :   I'll send You, Doctor, other nos e picture after this little " retouch"
User :   I WON'T keep on,
Doctor :  
These instrument are meant only for external use.
User :   oh, yes, I used it only externally
User :   on the nose pyramid , just external
Doctor :   External I meant where there can be no trauma.
User :   oh, I see
User :   I won't use it more
User :   now, I s ee my nose really much better, Doctor
User :   I went to the plastic surgeon quite near my home
Doctor :   Ok.
User :   and he told me that he really seems there are no visible imperfection such to request another surgery
Doctor :  
User :   maybe just that little thickness on the middle part
Doctor :  
User :   I'll send You again pictures about, if I may
User :   I'll go again to my plastic surgeon, the one who made surgery on me
Doctor :  
You can send the picture to YYYY@YYYY
User :   to see what he says
User :   oh, thanks You very much indeed, Doctor
Doctor :   Is there any other query, that I can assist you with?
User :   I'll try sending a very bright accurate and clear picture of profiles and front too
User :   my mother took the veneers too, the ones I talked with You last time
User :   they seem very good to us, they look almost like real teeth
Doctor :   If you are going to send the picture now, I shall wait for the picture and get back to over the chat, else we shall get back to you by email.
User :   it's just for cosmetic use, but it's a great step forward if compared to our previous situation
User :   no, I've still to do shots, thanks so much, I'll send You tomorrow
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   I want to make good shots with day light
