What could be the yellow liquid poured out of my nose?

For a few weeks now I was congested and one side of my nose was clogged. Out of nowhere it was like a seal was broken and yellow liquid poured out of my nose. I can breathe now but I wondered what the yellow water was and do I still have an infection?

Hello

Most likely the yellow drainage indicates a sinus infection and if it continues for more than about five days you'll need a course of antibiotics for it. In the meantime you can try either a Netipot or a saline nasal irrigation kit for it
