Doctor:like pollen, wool
Doctor:Okay, There are few conditions where in you can have problems similar to yours
Doctor:The first condition that needs to be considered is Atrophic rhinitis since you have undergone a sinus surgery
Doctor:then allergic rhinitis needs to be ruled out
Doctor:and last but not least, vasomotor rhinitis needs consideration.'
Doctor:These are the conditions where you will have continuous nasal discharge for no obvious reason
User:yes ,, because of rubbing the running nose, my nose truned to right side.. give me some suggestion to stop this.
Doctor:the treatment depends on the type, so you will have to consult a good ENT doctor for a thorough examination
Doctor:and you might also need some basic investigations done
Doctor:which may include complete hemogram
Doctor:Allergen patch test
User:should i go through oparation again..?
Doctor:Mr. Rajath, I am sorry, I will not be able to comment on that because the treatment depends on what exactly is the problem
Doctor:So I suggest you consult a good ENT doctor to get your self examined
User:ok,, sure,,,, thank you to spend ur precious time wit me..
Doctor:Once the exact reason for the problem is identified
Doctor:then we can think about how to treat that condition
Doctor:as I mentioned earlier the treatment depends on the diagnosis
Doctor:for the time being you can try to take some over the counter antihistamins like cetrizine which will decrease the running nose temporarily
User:wat is cetrizine ...? is it a spray or tablet.
Doctor:It is a tablet
User:ok... so wat is the dosage
Doctor:The over the counter medicines generally have fixed dosages,
Doctor:it cetrizine comes in 10 mg
User:so when ever i feeling like running nose, i supose to use this,,, rite?
Doctor:Yes, You can take one tablet if you have severe running nose
Doctor:but you should be careful not to drive or ride any vehicle
Doctor:as this can cause sleepiness
Doctor:is there anything else you want to discuss?
User:no doctor,,, thank you...
Doctor:You are welcome
