It can be tough enough to try and breath when you have a sinus infection, but what if you have a rhinolith AKA a GIANT booger?
1Rhinoliths are stones that form in the nasal cavity. It is not just dried nasal mucus or hard nasal mucus. Calcium, magnesium and phosphate salts deposit around a nidus like a blood clot. It gradually grows into an irregularly shaped sphere with projections. A rhinolith that is left untreated can cause perforation in the nasal septum or sometimes even palate. It can also lead to granuloma formation.
