My son has non-stop running nose for Months. The only time he did not have running nose was during his summer vacation for a few days. He is 15 year old and is frustrated as he finds it hard to cope up with 10th grade studies.Would appreciate any suggestions, remedies, treatment to stop his running nose - Thanks
Has he had any head trauma?
If he has tried prescription nose sprays without help, he should definitely
see an Otolaryngologist. If it is truly non-stop, we occasionally will see brain fluid leak from the nose, even without any history of trauma.
you said your son is 15 and adjusting to 10th grade. Not that i am accusing, assuming or judging, It happens all the time.. I would not rule out that he may be using some type of drug ( such as cocaine, or similar ) to help him cope. These drugs are easy to get, easy to hide, but will cause the nose run usually as long as they are using and can continue for weeks after stoping. ... It happens more often then not. I had this happen to someone i know and hidden well.. for a very long time, fooled the doctors, everyone, because it can be anything. but it finally came out. Kids now a days are searching,, not just kids, alot of people are.
Hopefully it is just a medical issue to get treatment for.
Hope you get good results with the doctor like the others said.. thats the first step..
