Difficult nasal breathing and subsequent snoring

Patient: I frequently have dried drainage in my nose and at night it limits my nasal breathing, waking with dry mouth and my wife states that my snoring has increased. I have tried breath right strips and they have some effect but not always. Should I see an ENT?

Doctor: You do need to see an ENT to take a look into your nose and anlyse the turbinates to see whethet there is any inflammati on. Also  you could use some nasal spray for temporary relief. All the best.
