Simple physics is: ...at work here. Even tho the airplane cabin was "pressurized", the air pressure is generally lower at maximal altitude than it is where you live. Low atmospheric pressure causes the air in the nose or sinuses to expand. That, in turn, can force any liquid that was also in there to drain out. Unless he gets thick, nasty drainage, headache or other symptoms, no worries! ...Read more

Colored: Colored mucous does not always mean infection. Other symptoms of sinusitis include pressure and pain in the sinus areas around the eyes, plugged nose, cough, increase mucous, occasioally nosebleeds. The nose bleeds and mucous may not be related but can be. You could try saline nasal rinses to moisten the lining of the nose to help it heal. The rinse wil also thin the sectretions and help clear the mucous. If it persists or worsens after 10-14 days, go to a primary care doctor. ...Read more

Tympanic Membrane: Hi Charles,

It seems that the debrox solution is leaking from your external ear canal into your middle ear, at which point it is draining through your nose (see image). This suggests that you have a perforation of your ear drum, or your "tympanic membrane" and that's how the debrox is leaking through. I suggest you have a doctor take a look in your ear canal to confirm if here is a perforation. ...Read more

It very likely is: Simple rhinorrhea: runny nose from allergies, a cold, exposure to cold temperatures such as you suggest. The fact that you also have itchy nose and eyes suggests allergy/hay fever as a cause which would not be unusual when you find yourself in a new environment with new potential antigens/allergens. Consider an OTC antihistamine or begin a steroid nasal spray (Flonase). I wouldn't worry about CSF. ...Read more

Hello, I had unprotected sex now I am heavily dripping down there with a clear very slightly yellow liquid/mucus I feel it dripping down?

Timing: If this fluid was noted right after having sex, then it is probably semen. If it has been a while, like days, a slightly yellow discharge can be normal based hydration and foods eaten. However if it is enough to drip out if the vagina without recent intercourse, I would recommend a pelvic examination to check for infection. ...Read more
