For the past few weeks...
For the past few weeks now (maybe close to a month) have had a clear watery salty fluid drip from right nostril. Blowing out clear mucus from both nostrils, sneezing, postnatal drip, sometimes itchy throat . Only happens when I'm active, up and about or exercising. Doesn't happen when lying down or sitting still. No head injury, headaches or past sinus surgeries or issues. Was concerned it was csf but 2 docs on here and another site said no.

My ears did feel slightly clogged, it comes and goes. I do have postnatal drip also
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Phlegm sometimes too

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds most likely Sinusitis and you shouldn't worry about CSF discharge.

You should take some self-care measures until you see your doctor.

Do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

You should take the nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray.

You should take Ibuprofen and Nyquil/Claritin.

You should hydrate yourself with warm liquids.

You should start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges.

Take OTC Robitussin DM for a cough.

Elevate your head while lying down.

If your symptoms will persist then see an ENT specialist for further evaluation and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I tried some nasal spray and cold med to dry up the runny nose but it seems stubborn. I thought it could be too dry in the house from the heat running since it got cold here

Can this type of thing stop on it's own?
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Also, can mucus be very thin and watery?

Thanks for the follow-up.

Your symptoms are associated with cold weather, low humidity, dry air.

So when you inhale cold, dry air, the moist tissue inside the nose automatically increases fluid production to do its job of protecting sensitive lung tissue resulting in such discharge.

You should continue nasal saline spray.

And use an oil based humidifier in your room.

Try all such measures as we have discussed earlier.

Hope this helps.
