Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

During every summer season, I suffer from a cold and runny nose. What can be the reasons?

Answered by Dr. Murad Haider

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your case does not seem to be serious. The terms rhinorrhea and rhinitis are often used to refer a runny nose, it refers to inflammation of nasal tissues due to a number of reasons, which are as follows: Acute sinusitis, Allergies, chronic sinusitis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, common cold, decongestant nasal spray overuse, deviated septum, drug addiction, dry air, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's granulomatosis), hormonal changes, influenza (flu), lodged object, medications, Nasal polyps, nonallergic rhinitis, occupational asthma, pregnancy, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), spinal fluid leak, tobacco smoke. Call your doctor if you have the following: Your symptoms last more than ten days, you have a high fever, your nasal discharge is yellow and green and is accompanied by sinus pain or fever. This may be a sign of a bacterial infection. you have blood in your nasal discharge or a persistent clear discharge after a head injury. Thank you and take care. Regards.
