Why does my nose run every time I eat? It also runs when I bend my head forwards.

Don't worry: Fact is as we get older the sense of smell and taste diminish a bit, however, the lining inside your nose is still very sensitive to many things. I can't answ ep why it happens at the times it does but I would guess that your nose is reacting to your food and mucus cells are activated and causing your nose to run. The very best person to ask is an ENT doctor. ...Read more

Ask your doctor about switching to soy or elemental formula. For any infant breathing issues call your md. ...Read more

My 2 sons have a constant runny nose and I give them an antihisthamine every day. Is it healthy?

Relatively safe: Antihistamines are indicated for long term treatment of sinus allergies and although they have side-effects and possible complications, they are relatively safe. A regular check up at your doctor will make it safer as well as the use of cortisone nasal spray instead of antihistamine tablets. It may be an idea to get a proper diagnosis of what is causing the runny noses. ...Read more

Got new hepa vacuum cleaner it sucked up lot of dust much more than our old vacuum. Later I got a runny nose? Is more dust in air? Less dust in floor

Got new hepa vacuum cleaner it sucked up lot of dust much more than our old vacuum. Later I got a runny nose? Is more dust in air? Less dust in floor

HEPA traps the dust: Less dust in the air if done correctly. More dust in the air if done "incorrectly." A person can always wear a mask when cleaning or vacuuming. Compare vacuum cleaners: a vacuum cleaner that blows air out the top usually will not blow all the nearby dust into the air, but vacuum cleaners that blow air out the sides or the back of the machine will blow lots of nearby floor dust into the air. ...Read more
