Nose issue

When looking up into my nose I am able to see some exposed areas of bone/cartilage on both of the inside walls aka my septum...  What can I do? Yes unfortunately this is most likely from past cocaine usage and inner nose picking/wiping with somewhat rough paper towels or tissues. I remember years ago looking inside my nose and all of the surfaces were pink, so clearly something is wrong because some small areas on the inner septum walls are whitish and hard....

An ENT would have to take a look. Mightvjust be scarring or scabbing.

Dokter...ek sukkel met asemhaling. Haal asem deur my mond wat veroorsaak dat my mond kurkdroog word. Al pompie wat help is Vicks. Maar dit is blykbaar nie goed vir pal gebruik nie. Geen ander pompies wat ek gebruik, selfs die wat voorgeskryf is, help nie. Ek gebruik wel pille vir allergie.. Dit veroorsaak dat ek nie goed slaap nie want ek word wakker van my moond wat droog is. Dankie

Thank you for responding, I'll probably have to find another Dr. locally to see about this as I'd be too embarrassed to bring this up to my PCP. If I was able to email you a basic photo, would you perhaps give me your 2 cents? I understand that it would just be your opinion, and I wouldn't hold you to any actual diagnoses etc.
