The doctor called the deviated septum of the nose the cause of chronic rhinitis. It has either a traumatic character or a genetic origin.

“The more it is curved, the more likely it is to obstruct nasal breathing. The interior of the nasal cavity is changing.

Six months is enough for the process to become chronic,” the doctor noted.
