I am a Govt. employee, and having age of 30 years, my problem is that everyday when i get up from sleep at day or night some kind of white fluid is dipping from my nose it remains for long time. Moreover, it start dipping any time suddenly. I am worried about that my doctors says that it is a kind of allergy and it could not be cured permanently. I tired from using allergic tablet daily. Please give some useful suggestion.

Clear watery discharge from nose indicates that you are having rhinitis.
If you have sneezing and associated itching of eyes , throat and ear , you are probably having allergic rhinitis.
If you ever had any history of injury to head or nose , there is a possibility of CSF rhinorrhea ( fluid from covering of brain leaking through roof of nose ).
Other reasons could be vasomotor rhinitis.
If you are having allergic rhinitis and are fed with tablets , the option available is nasal spray.
Nasal spray containing azelastine and topical steroid can give very good relief in allergic
These sprays do not produce sedation or other side effects.
Consult ENT surgeon or pulmonologist nearby who can decide from symptomatology whether you have allergic rhinitis.
If allergic rhinitis , discuss about using nasal spray.
For allergic rhinitis not responding to treatment sublingual immunotherapy gives promising results

Hello Mr Islam,

Fluid dripping with or without sneezing may suggest that you are having allergy to something in the surrounding. This is a common problem. Though allergy cannot be cured permanently, control of symptoms to a great extent is possible. Do not worry too much.

Look around your home and work place. See any item in your immediate surrounding which induces itching of nose or watering. Avoid exposure to dust, fumes, pollen and pets. Keep a watch on food items like prawns, processed foods and preserved items. See whether your symptoms worsen after consuming anything out of the ordinary.

Get your doctor’s help and see the number of eosinophil white cells in your blood. He will prescribe remedial measures if you have eosinophilia.

Some people do benefit from montelukast preparations, alone or with antihistamines (medicine which acts against histamine released in the body during allergic reactions or inflammation). Montelukast has a positive effect on seasonal allergy. It is a prescription drug, to be taken under supervision of a doctor, as there are potential side effects.

Hope you could control your dripping nose at the earliest. Thanks for using
