Hay Fever (Allergic Rhinitis)
Hay fever, also known as seasonal allergic rhinitis, is an allergy-related inflammation of the nasal passages, throat and eye membrane (conjunctiva), caused by sensitivity to airborne pollens and molds.
Nosebleed (Epistaxis)
The inside of the nose is covered with moist, delicate tissue (mucosa) that has a rich supply of blood vessels near the surface. When this tissue is injured, even from a minor pick or scratch, these blood vessels tend to bleed, sometimes heavily.
Acute Sinusitis
When the sinuses become inflamed or infected, the mucus thickens and clogs the openings to one or more sinuses. Fluid builds up inside the sinuses causing increased pressure. Also bacteria can become trapped, multiply and infect the lining. This is sinusitis.
Deviated Septum
The nasal septum is the wall between the left and right sides of the nose.
Nasal Polyps
A nasal polyp is a benign tumor that grows from the lining of the nose or sinuses.
Broken Nose (Nasal Fracture)
A broken nose is a fracture of the nasal bones. In most cases, there is also some damage to nearby nasal cartilage, particularly the nasal septum.
Chronic Sinusitis (in Adults)
Chronic sinusitis is a long-term inflammation of the sinuses.
Common Cold (Viral Rhinitis)
The common cold, also called viral rhinitis, is one of the most common infectious diseases in humans.
