Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of nasal discharge in my right nostril. Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like allergies, hay fever, nasal polyps , chemical exposures, chronic sinusitis, tumors and a deviated septum. Need not to worry. For now apply warm compress on nose , keep your head elevated while sleeping , take steam and take benadryl twice a day . I would suggest you to consult ENT specialist for proper examination . Doctor may order CT scan , nasal endoscopy , viral culture test and blood tests . Doctor may prescribe antibacterial or antiviral depending upon the diagnosis along with decongestant or expectorant . Doctor may also prescribe anti allergic or recommend surgery in case of deviated nasal septum or nasal polyp.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
