A 19-year-old female asked:

Why does my mucus only drain through my left nostril? it has been that way for 2 years. the mucus is thick and clear. i rarely ever have mucus in my right nostril. i also have a slightly deviated septum if that changes anything?

The deviated septum is the likely explanation for unilateral symptoms. If the symptoms persist, it would be prudent to see to an ENT doctor, at your convenience. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV and Covid vaccines.
