Question: I'm unable to breathe through my nose from the starting. And always one side of the nose is blocked and leaking. Also I have cold most of the time so these are my main problems.

Brief Answer:
This is a very common problem.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. The most common cause for these symptoms is a DNS (Deviated Nasal Septum), Nasal Turbinate Hypertrophy and Allergic Rhinitis.

2. Medical treatment with nasal steroids, anti allergic medication and steam inhalation should be tried.

3. If medical therapy fails, a Turbinate Reduction (by radiofrequency or coblation), in some cases with a Septoplasty will solve your problem.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
