Blowing my nose all day...silly question...

Posted by ashli (My Page) on

Why?...I guess I've been blowing my nose often for at least a year...but I don't know why. I don't have an allergy?...I don't have a runny nose, just feels full often... I don't have watery eyes, no other symptoms of sinus, if it is sinus, no headaches at all and no colds. No fever. Doesn't matter the season.I am a chain-smoker...I cough, then usually have to blow my nose.
(No, haven't seen a doctor)...Could there be a connection, somehow, to cigarettes and my having to blow my nose?...
(Never heard of it)
It's annoying, but other than that, I feel fine.

Of course I would encourage you to stop smoking.
But have you ever tried a saline nasal rinse? I make my own, since I hate tasting the preservatives in the otc ones.
Mix 1 cup boiled, cooled water with 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1/4 tsp salt (without additives). I actually use the spray bottle from the otc stuff, since its easy to use.
Try spraying your nostrils 4-5 times a day, and see if it feels better.
Change the solution every week or so, but clean out the bottle with a little bleach water. Good luck.

I was just diagnoised with emphysema last year and one of the side effects is a runny nose. Not everyone has this symptom, but it's worth checking into. Sometimes my nose starts running like a turned on faucet, just clear water.
