Question: Today Morning yellow liquid started coming out from my left nostril suddenly.
What can cause this? I am really worried. When i look down it comes out. Its not that much but i am worried. Do i have to see doctor. I had Sugar cane juice yesterday around 400 ml can this be the cause?

Brief Answer:
You have to see the doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mam,
I have gone through your query; and suggest you that you have to see the doctor. Most probably you may be suffering from the left side of bacterial acute rhinitis. No need to worry, if you are allergic to sugarcane juice then it may exacerbate the condition.

Better to consult the ENT specialist to rule out other disease and for prescription of medicine.

Wish you good health

Good day doc. Yesterday morning, I bent over while taking a shower and blew my right nose gently with my hand covering the left. when i checked my hand, it was filled with light red blood and a little mucus . yesterday afternoon, i placed my head on the table suddenly a light yellowish fluid dripped from my right nose. Same thing happened a while ago. I recalled I felt pain around my right eye and right cheek and had a headache few days ago. Doc,what is the probable cause of this light yellowish red nasal discharge on my right nose?
