Do you have any other allergies other than dust?

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