DR HASAN :

This can happen due to either crusting in the nose itself or it can occur due to a perforation in your nasal septum

crusting started years ago after a breast abscess opperation the nose bleed after the opperation n crusted and bleed but never cleared properly

DR HASAN :

nasal septum is present in the middle of nose and if it get perforated due to any cause like some granulamotus disease , like some drug side effect etc

DR HASAN :

nasal septal mucosa helps to send the secretions in the back of throat and if there is perforation the secretions get stick there and after getting dry form crust

not a drug side affect only ever taken painkillers

but i can suggest you something being ENT doctor

DR HASAN :

you like alternative medicine so here it goes

DR HASAN :

Take one liter water , add one table spoon of baking soda and one table spoon of table salt

DR HASAN :

wash you nose from inside with it daily three times

DR HASAN :

put liquid paraffin nasal drops in your nose, two drops thrice daiy, its just like glycerine

DR HASAN :

These two things will help you a lot

DR HASAN :

Whistling may need perforation closure by ENT

DR HASAN :

but decrease in the crusting due to my remidies will help whistling to some extent also

Customer:

is this a big procedure?

no

because if doctor confirms that there is a perforation , he can put a silastic button there to close it
