Hello and welcome to HCM

A colorless, odorless nasal discharge on bending the head suggests CSF rhinorrhoea.
CSF rhinorrhoea is leakage of CSF (fluid present around the brain covering).
However, this is one of the possibility out of several possibilities.
Yellowish discharge from eye suggests an eye infection.
Dry cough occurs due to irritation of the throat mucosa by various agents.

Use antibiotic eye drops like gentamicin/ tobramicin eye drops 3 times a day for eye discharge.
Get CT head for the nasal discharge.
You can use a cough syrup like honitus for the dry cough.

The nasal discharge has to be taken seriously so visit your ENT specialist as early as possible.

Thanks and take care
