Deviated septum

Deviated septum from the point of view of Ayurveda

A deviated septum occurs when your nasal septum is significantly displaced to one side, making one nasal air passage smaller than the other.

A deviated septum may be present at birth, may become crooked during growth, or may be caused by injury to the nose and face.
A deviated septum often does not have any symptoms, but some symptoms include; difficulty breathing  through the nose, nasal congestion, sinus infections, nosebleeds, nose drips, sleep problems, headaches
