Does Your Nose Whistle When You Breathe?

  When you have a cold or runny nose, you may notice that your nose “whistles” when you breathe through it. This can be because of mucus or other buildup that’s obstructing your nasal passages, but if you notice the whistling sound when you’re not fighting a cold, it could be due to a hole in the septum. This hole, known as a septal perforation, can be in just the right place and be exactly the right size to cause the whistling sound when air passes through it. The septum (the wall that separates the left and right nasal cavities) should be straight and without holes, but that’s not always the case. Those with a deviated septum (where the septum is displaced to one side) may also experience whistling when they breathe through their nose. At our ENT clinic in Sugar Land, we can properly diagnose and treat your septal perforation or deviated septum, and eliminate the whistling.… Read More
