Nasal Allergy Problems

Last Thursday i went to Penang. My brother got Nasal Allergy problem. He got appointment with Doctor on friday regarding his Nasal problem and Doctor advised him for an immediate surgery on Saturday. The operation took about 2 hours 30 minutes.

Our turbinates are Prime Target Organs for your allergies - whatever you're allergic to selectively targets your turbinates and hits them hard! The reaction of your turbinates to your allergies causes the severe nasal blockage, sneezing, watering, itching, and facial pressure.

The Nasal Turbinates

The structures inside your nose that really react to your allergies are your nasal turbinates - and your turbinates react very dramatically: they can swell up massively in response to your allergies. Then your nasal breathing will be severely blocked, with or without a deviated septum.

As I mentioned above, the turbinates are long scrolls of bone on the side walls of your nose. The turbinate bone is covered with thick, pink nasal lining containing many large blood vessels. When you look inside the nose, the turbinates look like plump, pink cylinders with bony attachments to the side wall of the nose. Their function is to warm and humidify the air that passes through your nose into the back of your throat and then through your voice box and windpipe into your lungs.

On each side wall of your nose (right side and left side) there are actually three turbinates: the inferior (lowest) turbinate, the middle turbinate, and the superior (highest) turbinate. The inferior turbinate is by far the most important turbinate affecting your ability to breathe through your nose.

There are three factors involving turbinates that must be corrected to achieve a really outstanding improvement in your nasal breathing:
  1. Thick, enlarged bone inside your turbinates that bows out toward your septum, hangs down too low against the floor of your nasal passage or extends too far back. This is often a critical element blocking your nasal breathing, but obstructive bone can NOT be corrected by merely cooking the soft tissues of your turbinates with the laser, by sticking heated needles into your nose or by using pills and sprays. Only turbinate surgery with exposure and removal of the obstructive turbinate bone will eliminate this factor causing nasal blockage.

  2. Excessive turbinate soft tissues, often containing enlarged bone, that hang down too low off the bottom edge of your turbinates and block your nasal breathing. By actually removing this excessive turbinate tissue, We can achieve a permanent cure for this persistent problem - unlike the temporary help you might get by cooking the soft tissues of your turbinates with the laser, sticking heated needles into your nose, or using pills and sprays.

  3. Excessive soft tissues at the back end of your turbinates which become enlarged, like big balloons, blocking your breathing way back inside your nose. Remember that to really be able to breathe well through your nose, you must have an open nasal passage from the front all the way through to the back of your nose - merely opening the front or middle of your nasal passage and leaving the back of your nasal passage still blocked will Not help you to achieve clear nasal breathing! This is just plain common sense, isn't it? Because you are an allergic patient, so enlarged that the back ends look like big polyps, benign growths of shiny, enlarged tissue that severely block your breathing. The Real treatment? Have me surgically remove these massively enlarged back ends of your turbinates and you'll never need to worry about them again.
