The nose is your body’s filter for the air you breath. It warms, humidifies, and cleans the air making it four times more easily absorbed into your lungs. It is also responsible for your sense of smell, which enhances your taste and gives food its flavor.
Disorders of the nose greatly impact quality of life. They are usually caused by inflammation of the lining and occur from many factors, such as medications, infection, allergies, and age.
