Diagnosis of Perforations of the Septum













A doctor's evaluation






Doctors examine the front part of the nose and to view septal perforations insert an endoscope (a flexible viewing tube) into the nose.


Symptoms of Perforations of the Septum











Symptoms may include crusting around the ulcer or perforation and repeated nosebleeds. People who have small perforations in the septum may make a whistling sound when they breathe.


Treatment of Perforations of the Septum













Medicated ointment or saline nasal spray for ulcers




Rarely surgery for perforations






For septal ulcers bacitracin ointment or mupirocin ointment reduces the crusting as may saline nasal spray.



Doctors can sometimes surgically repair septal perforations using a person’s own tissue from another part of the nose or with an artificial membrane made of a soft pliable plastic. Most perforations do not need to be repaired unless bleeding or crusting is a major problem.


simple explanation



Inside the nose is the nasal cavity which is divided into two passages by the nasal septum. The nasal septum is composed of both bone and cartilage and extends from the nostrils to the back of the nose.


Ulcers (sores) and holes (perforations) in the nasal septum may occur as a result of


Nasal surgery


Repeated injury (such as from repeatedly picking the nose)


Cosmetic piercing


Exposure to toxins (such as acids chromium phosphorus and copper vapor)


Chronic nasal spray use (including corticosteroids and over-the-counter phenylephrine or oxymetazoline sprays)


Pure oxygen inhaled through the nose as is delivered through nasal prongs or a nasal mask


Diseases such as tuberculosis leprosy granulomatosis with polyangiitis (formerly called Wegener granulomatosis) and syphilis


Frequent use of cocaine snorted through the nose (because it decreases blood flow)


Symptoms may include crusting around the ulcer or perforation and repeated nosebleeds. People who have small perforations in the septum may make a whistling sound when they breathe.
