Quitted smoking. Developed runny nose and congested sinus. Is this common?

Hello, I quit smoking a little over a week ago, and I have developed cold symptoms, as well as a very runny nose and congested sinuses. I also just finished a round of antibiotics about two weeks ago due to a sinus and ear infection . Do you think my body is still regulating itself from the sinus infection , or is this a common reaction to quitting smoking?

hi kalan20,

i have read your question.sinus problem you have stated is not related to smoking and is not a withdraw symptom so you need not worry and its just due to common cold and yes body does take time to regulate itself.So your problem will get cured eventually .

still if the symptoms persist. i recommend you to consult a physician nearby

I would also like to congratulate you for quitting smoking.

I wish you a get well soon.
