What Is The Best Treatment For Thick Mucus Drainage From Nose
I have ringing in ears, ear fullness and nasal drainage. On Flonase and Cipro, what else can I take to clear mucus and unblock ears?
Ear fullness ringing: I sometimes add ear drops like cortisporin to decrease the ear fullness as it contains steroids. I also add an antihistamine (like Zyrtec) as it decreases the inflammatory process. Sometimes I use Astelin /astepro a nasal antihistamine spray in lieu of Flonase. Elevating head of bed and treating GERD, if presen, t w/ Zantac may help as GERD can exacerbate inflammation. f/u/ w/ doc

Excessive nasal drainage and corresponding cough to go with it. What's the best plan of action to be better in 24 hours for my acts?
Manage symptoms: Saline nasal rinses, hydration and Mucinex can help to clear mucous. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can reduce drainage but would not use it during day as it is sedating and affect mental performance. Honey and dextromethorphin can reduce the cough. Sudafed can treat the congestion. Good luck on the test.

Unrelated: These two things are unrelated. Could be seasonal allergies for the nose and eyes. The vaginal discharge could be a myriad of things. If you're really worried, you'll need to see your primary care doctor for a more compete evaluation. Could try over the counter allergy meds in the mean time. Hope this Helps!See 1 more doctor answer

Can Singulair (montelukast) help with post nasal drip and thick/plugged mucus (no nasal discharge)? Been taking it for perennial rhinitis for 2 weeks and no help.
No it won't: Singulair (montelukast) helps reduce inflammation in the airways, upper or lower, helps as an adjuvant therapy on the long term, not meant to treat acute or chronic bacterial/viral infection of the respiratory tract. See your doctor for evaluation, possible chronic rhinosinusitis. You may want to see an Allergist/Immunologist if you have access to one or an ENT specialist, best wishes
