User:sure dr.
Doctor:this will relieve your symptoms for now
User:i can feel that no filteration is happening when i breath by nose
Doctor:other measures, which will help, include salein gargles, 2-3 times of the day
Doctor:and use of the anti allergy pill, advised by your doctor, earlier
User:dr. whether its allergy or some nausal block?
Doctor:in case the symptoms are persisting for a long time, you may need a antihistamine pill, with a mast cell inhibitor combination
Doctor:since your symptoms are increased due to dust exposure, it is more probably due to allergy
User:i have little bit chest pain and throught infection due to breathing in dust and smoke
Doctor:but , i would like to confirm , this with a complete blood count, and absolute eosiniphil count
User:but i dont hve running nose or head ache
Doctor:has your ENT doctor, ruled out a Deviated nasal septum
User:if am somek and breath all the dust particles settle in nose and i can feel all the unfiltered air going through the throat
User:s he told i have Deviated nasal septum
Doctor:has a X XXXXXXX of the nose, or a CT of the para nasal sinuses , done ?
User:i have dr
User:can i snd the scan copy of xray
Doctor:In that case, most of your symptoms could be due to the deviated septum , and fixing that might be helpful to treat your symptoms
User:this in proper filteration is alos due to that
Doctor:yes, you can mail it to YYYY@YYYY with Attn: dr anvekar in the subject line
User:k am sending it now
Doctor:the nasal passages are lined with cilia, that , clear all the dust particles
Doctor:but allergens, that are very minute in size, can produce allergy signs , by acting within the upper nasal passages
Doctor:it will take a while for me to recieve it and go thru it

User:dr. whether i have Deviated nasal septum
Doctor:the best way to control your symptoms can be a prescription medication, with a antihistamine and a mast cell inhibitor combination
User:k fine dr.
Doctor:yes, the X XXXXXXX , does indicate that you have a deviated septum
Doctor:and allergies and winter colds, do aggravate your symptoms
User:all this symptoms might be bause of this
Doctor:surgical correction, of the septum, will help to reduce all your symptoms by increasing the space in the sasal passages
Doctor:yes, that is right
User:hmmm fine
User:the unfilteration is also because of that dr.
Doctor:the septum, does not have any issue with filtration issuess, unless, all the nasal passages have been affected by the process and there is atrophic rhinitis
Doctor:but , you need not worry about that
User:but my ent dr
Doctor:as your doctor, might already would have ruled that out
User:asked to take medicine for life time
