I have a question about a perforated septum. I started doing cocaine about a year ago to lose weight and unfortunately was introduced to the party aspect of it. My usage increased and despite painful side effects continued without hesitation. A recent tumultuous relationship increased my need to be numb. In January I felt a small hole developing and notice abnormal noise when inhaling and exhaling. About 3 weeks ago I shined a light in my nose to see if I could see anything. There was a hole completely through. I began using Neosporin to try and heal it. This week I have not seen the light shining through. Can this really heal or is it just an obstruction?
Also, I have had any bleeding for about 3 months now. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I also have been noticing an abnormal viscosity if/when my nose runs. Is it possible this may be brain fluid and not mucus?
If anyone has any comments or info, I would really appreciate it.
