MY nose is dripping s clesr substsnce that tastes like tears and has the consistancy of water. What is this?

Allergy/sinuses: If you have had a head injury recently then this could be a serious problem and you need to be seen right away. If you have not had a head injury then it is likely to be allergic rhinitis or chronic sinusitis. You could try a nonsedating anti-histamine like loratadine and nasal saline solution to try and clear up the drainage. If this does not work then see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more

Can I take benadryl (diphenhydramine) if I already took Allegra earlier? It hasn't touched my sinuses. My nose is dripping, eyes watering, and im miserable but hesitant

Can I take benadryl (diphenhydramine) if I already took Allegra earlier? It hasn't touched my sinuses. My nose is dripping, eyes watering, and im miserable but hesitant

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) with Allegr: You can take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) though it will increase the dryness of the mouth. If Allegra is not working for you you can ask your MD if you can take Zyrtec or perhaps use a nasal antihistamine with or without a nasal steroid. Finding what is best for each patient is trial and error. Work with your MD. Zyrtec is over the counter. Fixing the drippy nose usually causes eye irritation to resolve as well. ...Read more

Water is coming out of my nose! Please help?

Water is coming out of my nose! Please help?

See an ENT: It could be nothing but clear fluid coming from the nose (rarely) can be leaking spinal fluid. If you have enough coming out, I would get a sealable small clean dry and catch as many drops as you can so they can run a beta-2-transferrin test on it. You will need about 1/2 a teaspoon worth of fluid to test it. Of course it could just be allergies or a cold! ...Read more

In fact, many people use a saline nasal rinse every day to clean out their nasal passages. If you have water that is either much more or much less salty than you are, then it is going to be very uncomfortable. ...Read more

I've tipped my head over twice and water radomly fell out of my nose why do I think that happend?

Probably rhinitis: Probably rhinitis. You nose makes mucous and when the turbinate is stimulated it will secrete. Bending over can stimulate the nose and thus mucous can result. In rare cases other fluids can come out. Tears from the eye drain into the nose, in super rare cases small openings from the brain cavity into the nose can lead to brain fluid leaking out the nose. If the fluid is very salty see an ent. ...Read more

When I go under water in a pool I hear this wierd stretchy noise coming from my head or nose. Is this normal?

Yes.: As you descend the increased external pressure compresses any air filled cavity in your body (much of this is in your head) and causes some creaking / popping or squeezing sound. You can hear the same sounds on a submarine although the pressures are of course much greater. ...Read more

Why is it that my nose drains like a clear liquid almost like water when I bend over to stretch?

I have had a cold but it feels like I have water up my nose and this has never happened before. What could this be and what should I do?

Head cold: With a head cold the nasal membranes do swell and discharge watery mucus. Is your nose running and draining mucus? If not, try warm water nasal irrigations or a nasal spray of salt water mist to promote drainage. If still no drainage you may be dealing with nasal polyps or allergies. An otolaryngologist can evaluate, advise and treat you after making the proper diagnosis. ...Read more

Today while washing my face, I may have gotten a little droplet of water up my nose. Can you get Naegleria fowlieri from this? I have municipal water.

Agree w Dr. Kwok: If your municipal water is properly chlorinated then N. fowleri should not be an issue. Naegleria fowleri
is most often found in lakes, rivers, hot springs, warm water discharged from industrial plans, & poorly chlorinated or un-chlorinated pools. ...Read more
