Nose and Sinus problems are a great source of frustration for many patients. Given that most of us breathe through our nose for most of the day, diseases affecting the sinuses and the nose can greatly impact our quality of life.
Sinusitis and nasal obstruction (blocked nose) is most commonly due to a viral infection or underlying allergic reactions. In some cases the shape of the nose on the inside can be the problem. Rarely other significant diseases of the nose or sinuses are the underlying cause.
