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

She does not have mucous( catarrh) accompanying it. What does that mean? I have met the GP and she gave her nasal drop, but it isn t helping

Recent questions on  Nostril

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.

I am a 34 yr old female, and I have had pain in my left nostril for over a year now. I have to remove the crust and buildup inside my nose daily, which can also be painful and sometimes cause bleeding. I was tested for staph but that came back negative. Now I am having soreness and pressure in my teeth, and I think it may be related. Please help!

Hi. I've been experiencing having one runny nostril all the time now each day for the past 2 years. At night, I breathe through one nostril. The breathing nostril will switch depending what side I'm sleeping on. I always feel tired, as if I'm not getting good enough sleep. What are your thoughts?
