A flowing nose is characterized by excess mucus that comes out from the nasal canal. The excess mucus production can be due to a number of causes including flu, cold, sinus infection, allergies, deviated septum, changing weather or fumes from certain pollutants. Flowing nose often gives you a sore throat and can also trigger cough. If the mucus blocks the Eustachian tube it can lead to a painful ear infection.
HOW IS FLOWING NOSE DIAGNOSED?
If the flowing nose is caused by bacterial infection it can be treated with antibiotics and if it is caused by viral infections it can be treated with antihistamines and decongestants.
