Have you ever seen your nose in the mirror? 2 reddish blobs, one on each side. See them through the day, the size keeps changing. Did you know that they are one of the most sophisticated gates that nature has provided you with? At these gates are sensors which are analysing each & every breath for its content especially dust, humidity & temperature. If the air is dust filled, the gates appear swollen - but for a good cause. The air turbulence ensures a finer cleaning of the inhaled air. Viruses, bacteria & allergens play havoc at these gates & cause you to wish that you never had a nose. It's our job to mend these gates, surgery is not the only answer. Medical gatekeeping is an art.
