Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You seem to be suffering from a Deviated Nasal Septum and probably, an allergic rhinitis. Budesonide nasal spray is an steroid medication which works to relieve the allergy and congestion. However, it is only a temporary measure.

DNS can be corrected permanently with surgery only. So, if your symptoms are severe and persisting despite medication, then it would be worthwhile to consider the option of surgery. Please discuss this with an ENT specialist.

Wish you all the best.

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding permanent cure for your deviated nasal septum.

I would like to tell you that deviated nasal septum is such a condition of nose which can't be corrected by medicine. But before going for surgery we will try to know the severity of symptoms. Main problem caused by septal deviation is air way obstruction. but if patient is having other nasal problems as- nasal discharge, sneezing, itching etc, than we will try to find out associated diseases like allergy, nasal polyp and sinusitis etc, because large nasal polyp also give rise to septal deviation and this type of septal deviation is called as secondary D.N.S.
You are advice for following basic investigations-
(1) C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses,
(2) Diagnostic nasal endoscopy,
A thorough clinical examination to find out weather you have only deviated nasal septum or other associated diseases are also contributing.Depending upon diagnosis different surgical procedures are adopted they are as under-
(1) Septoplasty operation - in cases of only nasal septal deviation.
(2) Septoplasty with FESS operation-in cases of DNS with sinusitis or nasal polyp
(3) septoplasty with Turbinoplasty -in cases of DNS with Tubinate hypertrophy.
I think you should now consult your his expertise will decide the correct operative procedure.

Hope your query is now explained well.

With Regards.
