Diagnosed with bend in nose, have softening of skin on finger tips. Are they relate?

Dear Dr., I am a P.G student, I am allergic towards green peas, ground nut, gram and bengal gram from my childhood itself. And from my age of 4 years, i started to feel difficulty in breathing due to frequent cold and sneezing . And i believe its then when i started mouth breathing . As i grew up my allergy list also extended such as dust, cold climate and pet s fur allergy. At about an age of 13, i realized that i have a bent in my nose (it was clearly evident in my photographs). And the next change i found in me was the softening of skin in my right hand finger tips due to which it became difficult to use soap and water frequently. I want to know whether these allergies has any connection with the bent in my nose? will the lack of oxygen breathing lead to Hypoxia? And do i need to do an immediate surgery?

From your description of your problems, there is no suggestion that you lack oxygen. Mouth breathing does not result in hypoxia. There is no surgery that would help you with these matters.
