Liquid Coming Out Of Eye After Using Afrin
I used Afrin (oxymetazoline) before bed, now my nose hurts and im leaking clear liquid from my nose, is this normal? The pain woke me up. Hurts when I turn my head.
Afrin (oxymetazoline) is supposed to: Help with decongesting your nostrils so you can breathe while you sleep. So yes the clear liquid coming out must be what the Afrin (oxymetazoline) decongested -- however, if that clear liquid thickens up, or becomes cloudy, and you have more headache/pain noted without using more Afrin (oxymetazoline), you may need to get to a healthcare provider so they can treat you for potential sinus infection. ...Read more
Squeezed new afrin (oxymetazoline) bottle. Just felt air come out. Put my hand in front. Just felt air. So I shook it, and liquid came out. Not mist. Is that right?
No.: But Afrin is not a great medication, often. Over the counter meds for cough and cold have no proven efficacy and make some problems worse, and have side effects, too! Your nose can also become dependent on it. Get your money back and don't get another one. Steam, spicy foods/teas, peppermints, hot soup, lots of non-caffeinated non-caloric liquid, menthol nasal inhaler and blow don't sniff. ...Read more
When I descend on an airplane I experience almost unbearable sinus pains. My eyes are even bloodshot. Only on descent though. Besides afrin (oxymetazoline) any ideas?
Depends on: The status of the sinuses. I have the similar problem, it resolves within days of plane flight. I have not pursued this but it would in your case be important to see an ENT specialist for sinus evaluation. ...Read more

I see many people asking questions about oxymetazoline nasal spray. But today I bought eye drops containing it. What exactly is it useful for in eyes?
Oxymetazoline: This is a vasoconstrictor, so it is used to clear the redness in the eyes and to decongest the nose. Not a problem if used short term but long term use can create significant side effects. ...Read more
I used afrin (oxymetazoline) today and have severe burning in my nose and maxillary sinus area and into my eye. What can I do for relief? I have already tried saline
On day5 of a nasty cold. Cannot breathe out of my nose at all, smell or taste! Lots of pressure in head & ears. Sudafed & Afrin not helping. Any sugg?
I am having pressure when I bend forward in the back of my head and near my ears. Slight runny nose, no congestion, will afrin nasal spray help this?
Probably not: Afrin (oxymetazoline) can't be used for more than 3 days or you'll get rebound congestion in people using it chronically for that. Also it can't be used at the same time if you are on high blood pressure meds, glaucoma drops or meds, or any meds that can increase pressures. Read the package insert carefully first. It's basically a sinus decongestant, and you said you don't have any congestion. So go another way. ...Read more
After using eye drops the liquid keeps on coming out of my eyes though eye lids are closed. Doesn't it result in loss of medicine? Done lasik 3 day back
Yes & no: The eyelid can hold only 1 drop of liquid before the liquid spills out. When you close your eyes, you'll squeeze out any excess fluid. Since the medicine has already had contact with the surface of the eye, it should still be effective. It helps to lean back, stare upwards, place one drop on the outer aspect of the eye then blink very slowly. That should minimize wastage & maximize effect. ...Read more
Condensation?: Your eyes produce tear which is a clear liquid. When your lenses are pressed up close (leaning head on pillow/couch with glasses on?) to the eye, the vapor from your eye can condensate on the lenses and may appear a bit wet. This happens more often if you have watery eyes--when someone cries, his/her glasses often get foggy. Hope this explains your case. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes and no:
Systane gel can be mixed with regular Systane drops. However the eye can only hold one drop so it does not make much sense to mix them. Eye wash is used to irrigate out the eyes and is not a lubricant and should not be mixed with the the Systane gel or drops.
If you feel that your eyes are not being adequately lubricated by the Systane, then I would suggest trying other brands of drops ...Read more

When I blow my nose I feel liquid squirting up from the corner of my eye close to my nose. What causes that is it normal?
It can be normal: Your tear drainage system is connected from your eye/eyelid to your nose. If you close of the exit of the tear drain in your nose when blowing your nose, some people can experience a reflux of fluid back through the punctum in their eyelid. It is usually nothing to be concerned about. If the liquid is bloody or yellow/green, have an ophthalmologist evaluate it. ...Read more
Chemosis: Most probably what you have is Chemosis or an accumulation of lymph fluid beneath the skin of the eye (conjunctiva). The most common cause for this is allergy and can be relieved with either decongestant or antihistamine eye drops. These are available OTC or in prescription form. See your eye Doc if it persists. ...Read more
