What is the remedy for a runny nose after the removal of wisdom teeth?

I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed in late December of 2013. I have been sick for the majority of the time after the surgery, with a constant runny nose among the most annoying symptoms. I was wondering why this is, and if there is a corrective surgery to make it stop or if I will be like this forever.

Hello,Thank you for consulting with HCM.
As you are mentioning that after removal of your wisdom tooth you are experiencing these kind of symptoms, it looks that you are having some sinusitis problem.
Actually these wisdom tooth are associated closely to the sinus, in case of surgery there can be accidental trauma to the sinus.
Better once you should visit an ENT specialist to get complete examination of the sinus done with x-rays, as it will confirm the condition.
Hope it will help you.
