Nasal polyps are a possible cause of chronic nasal obstruction. Individuals with nasal polyps experience progressive nasal blockage and a diminished sense of smell. Often, polyps occur in people who have environmental allergies and/or asthma. Treatment options include the following:
Oral steroids such as prednisone will temporarily shrink polyps and improve symptoms.
Long-term relief from polyps requires surgery to remove the polyps and reopen the nasal airways. Patients with nasal polyps should undergo an allergy evaluation since allergies need to be treated to prevent the re-growth of polyps.
