Solutions to accelerate the healing of your nose wounds
NOSE WOUNDS ARE VERY ANNOYING AND SOMETIMES A VICIOUS CIRCLE IS CREATED THAT PREVENTS HEALING. THESE TRICKS WILL HELP YOU HEAL THEM QUICKLY.
Our nose constitutes, in addition to a characteristic feature of facial physiognomy, the organ that allows us to breathe. In it we have the sense of smell and a filter that serves as a defense against germs and dirt present in the air and trying to access the inside of our body.
The inner part of the nose is covered with a mucosa with many blood vessels, moist and partly covered by villi that allow the cold air we breathe to warm and clean before reaching the lungs.
The wounds in the nose are very annoying, even painful. In addition, they impede respiratory, olfactory and defensive functions. That is why it is so important that you keep your nose in good condition.
WHAT CAN CAUSE A NOSE WOUND?
The wounds in the nose can be external or internal and their causes are varied.
Normally they are more related to blows or trauma : a fall, a stumble against a door, a fortuitous elbow. They can cause, in addition to bruising, an external injury.
Certain infections , cause lesions in the external nasal area, but may also extend into the nose.
The scratches that result from excessive scratching or those produced by a cat, a dog, etc. they also result in the appearance of wounds.
The rubbing of the glasses, especially if they are tight, can cause a small wound.
They are usually much more annoying, as well as more difficult to care for and cure, since the area is less accessible. They are wounded in continuous contact with moisture and very exposed to the aggressions of microorganisms, pollution, dust and dirt present in the air.
The causes of an internal wound in the nose can be:
Capillary fragility : being an area with so much blood vessel, if these are weakened, they can cause bleeding and injury.
Colds and / or allergies : rhinitis and nasal congestion, together with the rubbing of blowing and the frequent use of the handkerchief – especially those of paper that dry out the mucosa – very easily produce small wounds in the nasal mucosa.
Nasal dryness : it may be due to the dry environment produced by heating and air conditioning, improper use of nasal decongestants, certain medications, etc. The nasal mucosa, when resected, cracks easily causing wounds.
Exposure to irritants : strong odors, chemicals, tobacco smoke, environmental pollution, etc., irritate the mucosa and can cause injury.
Piercings : in addition to the wound that is made to put it, having an object in the nose facilitates the occurrence of injuries.
