In brief: Vasomotor rhinitis

When we eat, our parasympathetic nervous system gets activated and causes us to secrete digestive fluids.
For some people, they also get activation of their nasal secretions. Nasal steroid sprays and nasal ipratropium spray are some treatment options, but both require a physician's prescription.
