Sneezing: maybe you are sneezing out dust. in any case, you are sneezing...so that means you may have seasonal allergies or an infection. consider an over the counter antihistamine (loratadine, cetirizine, etc). Another option is a saltwater nasal rinse system (neilmed.com). ...Read more

Twise a day  my nose  complet stop breathing cause i think sinus ilargy by  smoke or dust?

Nasal obstruction: I would need more information to render an opinion- what are the circumstances of the onset? Are there other possible triggers? Do you smoke? Does this occur at work or at home? Even if you don't have allergies, this may be a sign of non-allergic rhinitis or possible sinusitis. An exam is also necessary. For now, just use saline sprays until you can be examined. ...Read more

I have blown out of my nose dark mucus that looks like dust and yellow specs that looks like pollen. What does this mean?

Nose filter: One function of the nose is to filter the air we breathe. If there is an excessive amount of dust or large grain pollen like pine you will be able to see it. Sometimes brownish discolored mucous could be from trace amounts of blood from the nose or sinuses. Try nasal saline. ...Read more

I had a cold last month, now I have this weird thing as I smell dust everywhere, my nose is blocked, I had allergies all my life. Is this serious?

Allergies: Probably not. Try irrigating the nose on both sides with saline. Add 1 tsp salt to one quart of water and get a syringe and blow it into the nose. 50 cc each side 4 to five times a day. Use Flonase I. The nose 2 Sprays twice a day each nostril and see how this works. You can try a decongestant like Sudafed for a few days for the nasal congestion.

Naegleria: This is highly unlikely. there have only been just over 100 cases in the United States in the past 50 years and I have not seen a documented case in Florida. It is a good practice to wear a mask when working with anything that can be inhaled. ...Read more

I was walking to work in Manhattan.A janitor walking beside me took the broom out of the trash can and dust got in my nose.I am scared for hantavirus.

Hantavirus: The virus is know as 4 corner virus, because it is primarily seen in the Southwestern United states. I am unaware of significant issues in any metropolitan area. I think your concern is very low. However, it may be helpful to call your local health department. You can also check the CDC website for information. ...Read more

My nose is blocked. Is this sign of a sinus. I had deviated naval septum, got it operated twice and i think it's back. Or is this a dust allergy?

My nose is blocked. Is this sign of a sinus. I had deviated naval septum, got it operated twice and i think it's back. Or is this a dust allergy?

Not sure: It depends on your symptoms. Dust allergy would usually cause both sides to be congested and drippy, probably with some nasal itching. Eye itch might also be present. Since you have suffered and gone through two operations for this, it would probably be a good idea to see an allergist for skin testing (it's not like getting a shot, don't worry.) this would also allow you a second opinion. ...Read more

No one gets...: ...A cold from dust. Colds are caused by viruses, the most common being rhinovirus. An aspirating device of some sort can help clear the congestion, and saline nose drops can be of some help also. Lotions are for the skin; i don't know of any lotion that will help with a cold. ...Read more

I was briefly exposed to concrete dust two weeks ago.  Now I have a bloody discharge from my nose and sometime have trouble breathing when lying down.

Pulmonary or Cardiac: Your symptoms may be related to the dust exposure but may more likely signal a more serious problem related to your lungs and possibly your heart. Any high blood pressure or leg swelling or palpitations.? You should be checked by a cardiologist or pulmonologist as your symptoms may indicate a serious long term problem. Any cough or wheezing? The dust issue may just be a clue to a bigger concern. ...Read more
