Can Eye Drops Drain Down Your Throat When Put Into Your Eye
Is there any possibility that ingredients of nasal sprays go into the eyes and cause problem? Like when eye drops drain into nose and throat?
Eye/nose connection: Eye drops drain with gravity down the lacrimal ducts into the nose. Ear drops thru Eustachian tubes also drain with gravity into the nose. Nasal drops and aerosols can't work up into the eye (or ear) against gravity like your home plumbing - it's one way. However, a bone defect between nose and orbit (like from fracture or surgery) can cause air or medication from nose into orbit around eye.
Lacrimal duct: Lacrimal duct drains from eye to nose/throat.
I can taste eye drops in throat and nose. Is it dangerous for me to shallow things while having this taste?
Not a problem: There is a plumbing system connecting your tear flow with the inside of the nose. Eyedrops of certain types can be tasted. Consider that anything approved to be put in the eye will have no toxicity in the rest of the body. So there is no danger at all in this; don not worry a bout it.

Go back to your physician if not better and may need ENT evaluation
The eye drops possibly Ciprofloxacin are best for non gonococcal bacterial conjunctivitis!
I have cellulitis on my chin and a spot under my jaw line. The one on my face has opened and drained but the spot under my neck line doesn't have head.
See a surgeon: See an oral surgeon for eval immediately cellulitis indicates serious problem that may require immediate treatment
I have multiple spots on the back of my head and neck. They swell then open then im left with a draining swore, that's not going away. Its been a mont?
Time to see a doctor: It's best to have a physician evaluate the problem and see exactly what type of infection you have. Then he/she can prescribe treatment.
As the majority of lymph nodes drain on left side of head/neck, is there a significance to having a chronic rash situated on the left side of the neck?
Don't think so.: Not sure what you mean. Chronic rashes occur wherever they may without general regard to lymph drainage. The lymph node drainage of the head is generally symmetric.
I have bright orange/yellow watery liquid draining from my nose. My neck hurts/head/ears My whole face hurts. Teeth/jaw and so on. What is it?
Aches&Pains&Burning in my neck, upper back, shoulders, head, ribs, face. Tinngeling in head and left arm and feet. Nose drains clear fluid and ear?
Eval: Can’t diagnose with available information. Examination, history & possibly other testing would be needed to make an accurate diagnosis. Treatment would be dictated by diagnosis.
My neurologist says ER visit or primary doctor. Eye hurts/draining, ear ringing/pop, neck pop, bad vertigo w/nausea, headache. What could be causing?
Ear infection: Bad vertigo (room spinning) can cause nausea. Vertigo suggests inner ear infection. Ear ringing/popping suggests eustachian tube dysfunction if no pain or middle ear infection if painful. Eyes hurting/draining could be conjunctivitis. Depending upon site of headache, could be sinus pressure from upper respiratory infection causing all above. I'd vote for going to see your family doc but I'm biased.
Major sinus pressure. Head feels very full. Ears too. Lymph nodes hurt under arms. Neck is sore. No fever. But do chill easy. Sinuses won't drain. If?
Need to be seen: Unfortunately you can't be helped online, good luck
PH difference: If the drop is not exactly the same pH (acid-base level) as your eye it will burn. Also, when eyes dry out the concentration of solids in tears (osmolarity) is different than the drops and that difference causes burning.
Any eye drops: Can cause irritation, especially with certain "get the red out" drops. Some patients are particularly sensitive to the preservatives in eye drops. You might want to try preservative-free lubricanat drops to see if that helps.
