Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It could be due to a viral infection infection. I would advice you to take antihistamines for your runny nose. When the infection comes down, the pain behind the eyes should subside.

Hope it helps.

My 5 month old has had a runny nose (clear mucous) and watery eyes (no redness) for the last three days. She doesn t appear to be fussy or uncomfortable. I do hear the congestion in her nose when she is breathing. Does this sound like a cold, or an allergy?

Been to several ophthalmologists because of chronic tearing in my eyes and chronic nose running. Also diagnosed with graves thyroid condition and one . Nothing is working. No one thinks the eyes and nose are from one medical condition. One doctor said my tear ducts were blocked and needed surgery to fix, but then later said they were not. Any ideas for me to consider? e-mail address is YYYY@YYYY .
