I just had my top wisdom teeth removed 3 days ago. Is it normal for my left nostril to be runny? The pain and swelling have finally gotten better but I have an itchy runny left nostril. I was also told not to blow my nose or sneeze for a week so the runny nose thing is driving me nuts. I am taking Vicodin and Penicillin VK.
Hi With your query, as such there is no relationship between runny nose which is of viral origin and wisdom tooth extraction. Reason for not blowing the nose is it creates negative pressure and leads the extracted socket to bleed. For runny nose you can use anti histamines and steam inhalation for better relief. Hope I cleared your doubt
