Hi,

Turbinate hypertrophy means increase in the size of turbinates in the nose, which results in nose blockage and difficulty in breathing and the most common cause is allergy. Use oxymetazoline nasal drops to recover from nasal blockage.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Jaideep Gaver, Orthopedic Surgeon
