Not being able to breath well through the nose may be because of the turbinate. Persistent increasing inflammation in the concha may damage the nasal mucosa. In these cases a small operation with a radiofrequency technique to reduce the turbinate is carried out. In children this is done using general anaesthesia, in older children local anaesthesia is used. Given that radiofrequency is a minimally invasive treatment, bleeding following the operation is almost nonexistent and nasal plugging is not required.
