What is the management of atrophic rhinitis?
Q: I am suffering from Atrophic Rhinitis for a long time. On the adsvise of the doctor I had surgery for DNS and polyp removal but still the problem remains and I have malodor in my nose. What should be the treatment for this? Is there any at all? Please also refer me to someone in India as I want to get rid of this. With growing age, what type of problem can arise with atrophic rhinitis?
A:There is an operation called Yougs operation and it can be performed on you and you can find a lot of relief from it. Ask your ENT surgeon to let you know about this surgery. Atrophic rhinitis is not very common now a days and try to take a lot of proteins, iron, B complex and clean the nose daily with a solution of water with Baking powder (One spoon) and a pinch of salt. Then apply some nasal drops called Glucose gycerine, a 20% solution of it should be enough for you. Try it.
