Questions and answers on "Rhinorrhea"

Hello Doctor,
Yesterday evening while playing football I was hit by other team mate on right side of my face. After that incidence for 5-10 second I had clear fluid coming out of my nose and it stopped. After pay when I bend again the clear fluid came out of nose and it stopped. Then same thing happened when I went to sleep and fluid was leaking out of my nose if I sleep turning left side. Almost my handkerchief was wet. Today morning also very little fluid was observed. Also I could feel little dry in my throat and little change in pressure in my ears. Is it something serious to worry about?
Thanks for your response.

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!

doctor1 MD

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, 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.

doctor1 MD

Hi,
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.
