Dear, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!

You have somatic symptoms as well as symptoms of depression. For your "running nose problem", I advice you to consult an ENT surgeon as you may have sinus problem also which is causing headache as well. As of now, please take Tab. Cetirizine once a day, with steam...

hi, i have had a thick mucas in my throat every day for over a year which i need to spit out at least 50 times a day. its most worse in the morning and sometimes it can be green/yellow or black. i also have a constant runny nose and can sometimes be the same colour. recently if i look down my nose starts to drip contantly like water and i get a horrible tingle in my nose which can last for hours at a time. this has become extremly embarissing and very annoying. can you help please?
Welcome to HCM forum and thank you for the query.

You are suffering from Chronic Rhinosinusitis with underlying Allergic Rhinitis i.e. you got an infection in your paranasal sinuses. In most cases, it can't be cured. Therapy is needed to reduce the symptom and improve the quality of life.

Hi jerry;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Running nose & mucus had it been viral it should have subsided by now ;but as it did not it looks allergic in nature as it gets worse when you play out or get exposed to the climate.There should be some allergy causing factor that you need to find out .Till...

Hi My baby is 25 months old. She had nesquik milk day before y day. (I think it could be spoiled, however, when tasted it is good). After then, She is showing her tummy is aching and she is having pale yellow loose motion twice daily. This is 2nd day. By the way, she is having bad running nose. We are worried. Please help!
Runny nose and loose stools are two different issues.Its common for newborn babies to have noisy breathing, but if the nose is running, some medicines may be required to be used judiciously, including nose cleaning and nebulisation.You may ask a specific query for specialist Dr santosh's opinion....

Hi Dr,
My 10 month old son has been heating up for almost a week now, he's coughing, has diarhea, a runny nose, vomiting and had a rash which disappered including a discharge in his eyes. I took him to the doctor and he gave him paracetemol and an anti-biotic. He never got better except that the temp goes up and down ever since.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems to have a viral illness with the features of an upper respiratory tract infection and an episode of gastroenteritis.

I advise you to continue the medication as advised by your Pediatrician.

Maintain his hydration by giving sips of...

Hi, just wondering what potential concerns we should have - our 21 month old was running with a toy and fell, the bridge of her nose hitting it.
Between her eyes now it's swollen and light purple and there was a trace of blood in her tears and in runny nose, but she seems ok now after we applied a cold pack to the bruise.
You have done the right thing. If she is eating and drinking and back to her normal self then she doesn't need any further treatment. The blood is likely to settle down. If you think she needs some pain relief for the bruising then paracetamol would be suitable.

hi my little boy is 22 months, and was poorly yesterday, was sick and very hot, today he seems better but keeps crying in pain when he eats, i thought it was because he is teething but we have had a look in his mouth and he has a red rash on the roof of his mouth near the back, he seem hungry but cant eat, apart from a very runny nose he seems otherwise ok
Fever and rash can be due to many causes. You can give him medicine for fever and plenty of fluids but it is better to get the child examined once by a doctor. Small children are very delicate and can become seriously ill within a short time. Depending on clinical findings some lab tests may be...

My 5 month old daughter has a runny nose, raspy voice and has been waking up much more than usual at night. She is very happy all day and has no congestion during the day only when she cries and at night. When she is lying down and cries she chokes on her mucus I think.......we took her to the doctor yesterday but he said she was fine.
Welcome to HCM.
Your doctor is right,if your child is playful then no specific treatment is required and it will recover itself by her immunity.
If there is blockage of nose,you can use simple saline nasal drops.
chlorpheniramine drops at bed time will be helpful.
'Otherwise start good food with...
