Yellow Watery Nasal Discharge
Facial pain, fever up to 103 (fever has stopped), yellow watery nasal discharge, cough, greenish brown sputum. Sinus infection and/or bronchitis?
Possibly: Or you may be getting over a cold. As a cold improves the nasal secretions get thicker and a little yellow. If you are coughing up thick brown sputum with a deep cough I would be more concerned about a bacterial pneumonia or possibly bronchitis. Most bronchitis is viral and happens as the last part of a cold. If not improving see your doctor. ...Read more

My 2.8 yrold has runny nose- and a cough at night-- no fever-- 2 days in. He's had tons of colds -this time his nasal discharge is thicker and yellow?
Sounds like: Postnasal drainage causing the coughing spells. Need antihistamine to take care of the colds which eventually takes care of the cough. Change in color of colds does not indicate bacterial infection, virus, allergies can do the same. Watchful waiting and supportive treatment at this time since he is not running fever. See Peds if condition worsened. ...Read more

Thick green yellow mucus running from nose after 1 week of cold with large clear colored nasal discharge?
Flora shifting: If no fevers or significant pain--let it run! In fact, take Mucinex (guaifenesin) to keep things thin and flowing. Your body is likely re-balancing the flora in its sinuses, and this should stop about double the time you were sick. If fevers/pain, then see dr / urgent care. ...Read more
My husband hit his face about a month ago. He has a very watery nasal discharge, but also has allergy symptoms. Should we worry about brain fluid leak?
Thick yellow nasal discharge mixed with blood, painful tender spot middle of forehead just above eyebrows?
Sinusitis: If your symptoms have been going on for a short period of time, less than a week, then I would favor that this is an upper respiratory infection or viral cold. However, if your symptoms have been going on for longer than 7 to 10 days, then I would suspect that this may be a sinus infection. In that case, antibiotics may be needed to help alleviate your symptoms. See a doctor. ...Read more
Could be fluid: It could be fluid in your ear combined with a sinusitis. When the nose is congested it can affect the tube that runs from the back of your nose to your ear leading to the formation of fluid. Your primary care doctor should be able to make this diagnosis and often a course of antibiotics can be helpful. An ENT doctor can also take a look and make the diagnosis for you. ...Read more

Is my yellow nasal discharges reli needs anitbiotics? Any option? . I don't feel sick xcept of runny nose and a cough
Other option: Get a neil med sinus rinse bottle at your pharmacy with a box of saline packets and use as directed to wash the infection out off your sinuses. You may be surprised at how much gunk one person's head can hold. If you are dizzy and have vertigo, your doctor may have given you the antibiotic for an inner ear infection. If that is the case, use the rinse and. The prescription. ...Read more
3 year old with intermittent yellow discharge from eyes. Runny nose, occasional cough. Afebrile. Otherwise fine.?
I have yellow pus in my throat which was negative for mono and strep. I also have a runny nose and feminine discharge. What do you think the issue is?
Hard to say: I can't link your two symptom areas without bringing up the possibility of a STD, which would not be found on the tests you mentioned. The puss in your throat could reflect a sinus infection with drainage or just a bad viral infection. The origins of feminine discharge are numerous and defined best with appropriate study of the discharge. ...Read more
My three year old son is experiencing coughing, yellow runny nose, watery eyes, and dark colored lose stowels for the last 3days I have tried using over-the-counter children allergy medicine but his condition continues to worsen.
If: If your son is worsening instead of improving, you should call his doctor and have him seen. Viral illnesses can last 7-10 days total, but should start to improve after the first 3 to 4. If he is worsening, he could be developing a bacterial super-infection such as sinusitis, an ear infection or bronchitis. Good luck! ...Read more
My son is 9 months old. I think he has some seasional allergies. He is sneezing a lot, red watery eyes, and runny nose and all discharge is clear?
Don't assume allergy: If I blow pepper in your face, you sneeze & drain the same as those with allergy. I find babies have more congestion with scented cleaning products, perfume, smoke & other irritants than they do with animal dander or pollens. The tiny nasal passages that become very noisy with a little mucous or swelling gives many the wrong idea. Thease are not little copies of adult problems, their issues differ. ...Read more
Can Ipratropium Bromide nasal spray help with post-nasal drip? No runny nose or front nasal discharge, just the drip. Not linked to allergy (per ENT)
Depends: It depends on the cause for the post-nasal drips. If the nasal drips is not linked to nasal stuffiness, sneezing, or runny nose, one needs to consider other causes (sinus infection for example). If your nose and eyes itch, it is likely from allergy which can confirmed by the history and skin testing. One can't tell whether one has an allergic problem by looking at the nose and throat alone. ...Read more
