This is Dr. David
yes it is normal to be able to see your nasal septum.
it sounds like you are letting your anxiety get out of control on this.
do you have excessive anxiety over this?
you might need to see a doctor about excessive anxiety if you continue to focus and worry about your nose.
I am anxious only because i was worried that it is not normal to see the bone inside my nose
there is normal mucosa which is covering the bone there
and you have seen doctors who have looked inside of your nose and said it was normal.
do you want to consult an ENT doctor?
an ear nose throat doctor?
do you use drugs like cocaine which can wear away at the lining of your nose?
what is mucosa?
no i dont use coaine
what should the inside of my nose look like?
mucosa is the normal skin which covers the inside lining of your nose and sinuses.
mucosa is moister than the skin which covers your hands and face.
your doctors know what normal mucosa should look like and when they looked inside of your nose, they said it was normal.
you don't trust your doctors?
so what should the inside of my nose look like?
do you want to see a specialist?
everyones nasal mucosa can look different.
it is impossible to completely describe your nasal mucosa to you.
you can have hair grown in your nostrils as well.
so is it ok that i can see the nasel septum ?
yes, it is ok you see the nasal septum dividing you nose.
what colour should it be, mine is white ish with fleshy tones
yes, that can be normal for you.
I would recommend you see an ENT doctor specialist
to have them examine your nose
do you think i am worrying for no reason?
since you have seen a doctor already
who has looked inside of your nose.
what is an ENT doctor?
a specialist ear nose throat doctor.
they specialize in the ear nose and throat and do surgeries in these areas
i think i am worried because when i was younger i used to use alot of vix nosel sniffers and i am worried it has affected my nose
I see .
i have heard they can effect the nose
how do i go about seeing a ENT doctor
well, your doctors have looked in your nose already
you have to ask your GP doctor to refer you to an ENT specialist
or you can see one in private and pay for the consultation yourself.
