Anyone have any experience of this or these symptoms?
I've been drooling excessively (just when asleep) which is causing cracks in corners of my mouth. And also sometimes I get pain in my face (generally face, head, throat and jaw) and never really connected the two.
Google says that these can be symptoms of a deviated septum. I'll also add that I have two autoimmune diseases.
I had a deviated septum but did not have symptoms like yours. Mine was mostly congestion and frequent sinus infections. Disappeared after surgery but left me with a nerve issue!
I have one, I can’t really breathe out of one of my nostrils, my sinus on that side is very painful when I have a cold, I also sneeze differently. Mine is a rugby injury, luckily my nose is still straight and there isn’t a visible bump.
If you’re drool is causing sore skin could you put a generous amount of vaseline on your mouth?
If you’re worried seek advice from a medical professional.
Oh dear, I'm sorry. Was the nerve issue due to the surgery?
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, good point - I need vaseline! Thank you.
