Hi can you change the position or shape of nose by forcefully contorting nose (as in anger) through facial expressions or exercises?

My nose is always stuffed except for when I am doing vigorous exercise. What could this be?

My nose is always stuffed except for when I am doing vigorous exercise. What could this be?

Vasoconstriction: Vigorous exercise by stimulating the sympathetic nervous system could be constricting the blood vessels in your nose decreasing swelling. It is possible that vitamin c and bioflavanoids might be able to block histamine induced stuffiness when you are not exercising. Look at high histamine in foods as well. ...Read more

Problem of running nose after exercise?

Probably: Exercise induced rhinitis. This is a form, and more common than you think, of non-allergic rhinitis. It appears to be related to hyperactivity of "cholinergic" glands. Review this with your doctor as there are treatments. Alternatively, it also could be related to an exposure in your exercise environment too. ...Read more

When you exercise is it better toinhale through the nose and then exhale out the mouth? Why?

When you exercise is it better toinhale through the nose and then exhale out the mouth? Why?

Yes: The nose is an air processor. It warms, filters and humidifies the air you breath so that when it gets to your lungs it is clean, warm and moist - just the way the lungs like it. By mouth breathing your lungs have to work harder because the air hasn't been processed. ...Read more

It seems whenever I do the "finger-to-nose" exercise only my lazy left eye moves. Is that weird?

It seems whenever I do the "finger-to-nose" exercise only my lazy left eye moves. Is that weird?

Eye movements: Interesting! When you look to the left, right, up and down, do your eyes move the same way? If so, you may simply not be converging normally. If not, there could be something wrong with that muscle or the nerve to that muscle. You should see an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I develop a runny nose when I run and it persists throughout my exercise. It's more frequent in winter. Is there medication to prevent drainage?

Exercise Induced: Rhinitis, is not uncommon, and affects some individuals who may be suffering as well from other forms of nasal problems, or not at all; at any rate try some OTC nasal steroid sprays before exercise, check with an allergist/immunologist for better evaluation (see aaaai.

Should I exercise/ do sports if I have a stuffy nose and sinus infection?

Should I exercise/ do sports if I have a stuffy nose and sinus infection?

Should be safe..: As long as you don't have systemic symptoms like fever and as long as you can breathe clearly.

On the other hand, if you truly have pink eye as described in your profile, you should stay home until your symptoms clear up, as this is highly contagious.

Best wishes. ...Read more

I've got a cold. Chesty cough, runny/blocked nose etc no fever though. Is it ok to do a high impact exercise class?

If breathing OK: If you are breathing ok and not feeling short of breath with the exercise, it's fine. Try and do it in a well humidified area so your airways don't dry out, and drink plenty of fluids, preferably water, to keep yourself hydrated. If your body is too tired to do what you are asking of it, it will tell you - listen to it if that happens. ...Read more

Exercise no help: In acne prevention, but of course it's good for your body, as is water! If this is the only one you get, just keep the pores open by applying hot washcloth every morning and evening for a few minutes and if the pimple comes, use some salicylic acid acne preparation to dry it up. If it really bothers you, a laser treatment could kill the bacteria that is causing the pimple. ...Read more

See your physician: There are many types of headaches (migraine, tension, cluster) and many reasons for each type. Alternatively, you could have sinus or other issues.
