When I play my ps2, I get a stuffy / runny nose. So is this vasomotor rhinitis?

Moms would like that: Don't think so. I think that in order to take down the bad guys you are forced to sit on the carpet or the sofa for long periods of time with exposure to house dust mites or pet dander. You more likely have perennial allergic rhinitis to house dust mites, dog dander or cat dander. ...Read more

Can allergic rhinitis cause frontal sinus pain? No discolored mucus just clear runny nose

Can allergic rhinitis cause frontal sinus pain? No discolored mucus just clear runny nose

Sinusitis can...: Perhaps, but it is still likely due to an occlusion of drainage of the sinus. Most sinusitis is not a bacterial infection without signs such as discolored nasal mucous, increasing sinus pain, possibly fever, and usually has been going on for at least a week. Sinusitis can still occur from allergies or viral infections, and can present with clear mucus. Try afrin nasal, decongestants. ...Read more

Have nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing made worse when exposed to low temperature. Nose blocks after sneezing. Do I have nonallergic rhinitis?

Have nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing made worse when exposed to low temperature. Nose blocks after sneezing. Do I have nonallergic rhinitis?

Possible: But in my experience, having sneezing spells (especially if you have eye symptoms) points more to allergic than non-allergic. Nonallergic rhinitis is a diagnosis of exclusion also since one needs to prove that allergies do not play a role. You may also have both allergic and non-allergic rhinitis as well. Try a nasal steroid spray ...Read more

Most mornings I wake up with a runny nose and very often have nasal congestion. No temperature & I feel fine. No known allergies. Vasomotor rhinitis?

Combination problems: Congestion after lying down is due to dilation of nasal tissues related to gravity. That said, if your septum was straight you probably wouldn't feel congested. Also, most people have at least mild allergies so when you say "no known" do you mean negative tests? It turns our there is a commin condition called "local allergic rhinitis" where the nose is allergic but tests are negative. See an ent. ...Read more

Is non-allergic rhinitis common in asthma? Cough and mild wheezing are the only symptoms of asthma. No allergies- constant runny nose

All connected: In Chinese medicine, your lungs are connected to your entire respiratory system, including your lungs, your throat, your bronchial tubes, and your nose. So if your lungs are weak in something like asthma it would be likely that you'd also have a runny nose. It means that you need some strengthening of your lungs, and you should probably quit smoking. ...Read more

Rhinitis: Runny nose, sneezing/congestion are the cardinal symptoms of rhinitis, whether allergic or non-allergic. Swollen turbinates and clear fluid in ear (middle ears), are rather signs of inflamed nasal passages affecting middle ears drainage, yes you can have them without the classic symptoms in acute conditions, if long standing, better see an ENT for evaluation, good luck ...Read more

Mgt.: The cough may be related to a number of conditions. If the cough is persistent for more than 3 weeks, I would recommend follow up. A virtual appointment and uploaded respiratory sounds, may be helpful to you and your PCP.

See below: You really need to continue your evaluation. Sinus can cause your symptoms. Hopefully you have not had any trauma to the brain. Also you should have lab studies done. Try hydrating with very hot fluids to clear the sinus and see if this helps with that pressure feeling. Start with that if no relief get in to the doctor for more evaluation ...Read more

How can I manage a runny nose?

"Manage" is a good..: "manage" is a good word for what you do with a runny nose. "stop" would be a good word for what you do with a runny nose, if it were possible to stop it safely, but "manage" is what most people do -- with saline nose drops, more saline nose drops, and lots of tissue paper and patience. Antihistamines work if the runny nose is allergic; decongestants work poorly if at all. ...Read more
