Hi,
welcome to health care magic forum.
I would advise you to take plain water steam daily at night before sleep.
In the morning when u get up in the bed itself do some deep bresthing exercises like pranayam and anlom vilom. i.e inhale through one nostril and exhale through another nostril.
also avoid cold , sour things for a few days.
u may also take homoeopathic medicine Kalium carbonicum 200 once a week dose.
Take care

Hi Sharon,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This appears to be chronic sinusitis. You can definitely do steam inhalation, also drink plenty of warm water. Get a thorough check up done by a good ENT specialist to rule out any polyps/ deviated nasal septum.

Take care
Regards

Dr. Naveen Kumar

My nose feels uncomfortable and is painful when i touch it. I think that the mucous is dried up and stuck to the insides of my nostrils...it actually feels like there is glue inside my nostril. This has been going on for about 3 days and it is the worst when I wake up in the morning.

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.
