    You are probably allergic to something.. did you recently acquire a pet or change environment?

    I am 37 and have been told by my GP that as I have always been sweaty then there's nothing they can do. A gentle walk brings me out in a full body sweat and my nose starts running badly. I can't go anywhere without a tissue. Its as if my body turns on a tap and the sweat appears all over me. I have a healthy livestyle (food and exercise) and have no known medical problems. I am becoming increasingly embarrased by this problem. Can anyone suggest any treatments for the runny nose and overall body sweats?

    Hi,my name is Egle,im 33 years old.I have this problem,that im sick of.I tried everything and nothing makes it stop.I am getting Herpes all the time.At least once a month.If i dont have it on my lips,then its inside my nose.If its not inside my nose,then its under it.I saw different doctors about it about 3 times.And i always hear the same questions-do i eat well,do i sleep well etc.The thing is-i am a healthy person.I dont smoke,i only have a drink at weekends,i sleep well,i exercise.I almost never get sick.If i do,i only get runny nose,nothing more,i mean,i have good immunity.So i dont understand,why i keep getting it??I noticed,that it always comes up before my period or at the day im getting my period.I never had it on my genitals,only on my face.Once my gp prescribed me some expensive tablets,i cant remember the name of it.I was told once i drink the course,i will forget what cold sore is.I drank 2 courses,but nothing changed.I know you cant cure herpes virus and once you have it,it will stick with you all your life.But i wish i could get it once or twice a year,like all normal people.I probably have read all the possible information about herpes,but maybe there's something you can help me with?Thank you in advance.Egle

    Hi there as like a lot of young people I have enjoyed a few years partying however my nose has really taken a beating and I think the bridge in my nose has started to erode away on one side and the cartilage in my nose feels as if it's dropped on one side, unless I told you about my nose problem you probably wouldn't notice it if you met me but me knowing about it and feeling the pain of it, it constantly plays on my mind.. What so I do?

    After a considerable amount of acne on my nose, I began scratching it and squeezing it to remove spots, which has left my nose very red and inflamed. I thought that it would go away in a few months, but the redness is still there after about a year, and it is confined solely to my nose. I do not believe that there is any significant swelling or thickening of the skin on the nose, and if there is it is very small. I have no idea what I am suffering from, and it is very embarrassing; what is my condition, and how do you alleviate or stop it?

    Is it possible for the worms to migrate or spread to eyes,nose, ears, throat and under the skin surrounding those areas? My family has been struggling to get rid of threadworms' for the past year but as small children don't follow strict hygiene measures at all times we're still working on it. Now it feels they are crawling in all my cavities at night, causing white linear or blotches on my skin where crawling sensation just occurs in my face. This is also giving me horrific headaches and very sore eyes. Doctors tell me I have allergy ( apparently allergy can walk )to pollen. Daytime still red eyes, runny nose and headache, nightime as a terror syfy movie. Don't know what to do, had to take steroids, antibiotics and antibiotic cream, nose sprays and now antihistamines. Paracetamol and ibuprofen do nit relieve headache either. Losing my mind here thinking I have worms in my brain and they are just guessing it might be sinuses or allergy. Not even a blood test taken after 2 visits to after hours and one in emergency room.Not sure what to make of all these strange anomalies as I never got any allergic reactions in my entire life. Thank you

    Hi Monica, I have similar symptoms and this is my story which may or may not help you. I first realised I had threadworms about 18 months ago when late at night one crawled out my anus, I felt the movement and immediately checked. Totally horrified to find a single white worm about 1cm long! No previous symptoms. I checked my young children and saw they were also infected but not my husband at that point. I tried over the counter Ovex and another type 3 times over a 6 month period for the whole family, exhausted and paranoid about hygiene and scrubbing the house. I went to my GP after 6 months when I was convinced we had been re-infected, was told to hand in stool samples, and was told all clear! Days later woke at night with them back. They don't always show up in stools! Since then we have continued taking over the counter meds..nothing working. I woke one night with the sensation of something crawling into my ear, got checked at A&E and told nothing there. The sensation in my ear has progressively got worse and I'm getting itching, sharp pain at times and lots of dizzy spells. At times it feels like something crawling out. Weeks after the ear issue I was woken from sleep exhausted to irritation in my nose, I rubbed it and felt something fall out onto my arm, I couldn't see what it was but convinced it was a worm. Since that I've had constant irritation in my nose at night and early morning. I found a whiteish/translucent curved shape with a greyish head like thing in my nostril which I thought was a hair follicle..and after research found that others experienced the same and was stated to be a dead worm?? I wish I'd kept this to show my GP. I'm also experiencing itching eyes, swollen, sore (symptoms of hayfever/pollen which I have) but when I wake early morning and look at a white surface I can see floaters which instead of small black bits are shaped like worms and translucient. I'm terrified and thinking this has all spread..what's next!! I'm suffering from sinus issues and headaches..also itching on my scalp at night. I went back to my GP told him and he has referred me to the hospital infectious diseases/parasites department for investigation. I did some research on this to try and get help and found this problem seems to be a worldwide issue, worse in some countries. GP's don't know how to deal with it and I'm lucky mine was very honest in stating it wasn't his field. I pray I'm being paranoid about it all but too many symptoms are saying different. I also found out that seemingly blood tests and a string test can show if a person is still infected? I will update when I have more info from my hospital apt, lets hope we get some good news to get shot of this pest!!!

    This past January I had a septal button put into my nose, because I had a very large hole in my nasal septum from a previous surgery I had when I was little. Just recently, the right side of my nose has been sore and swollen and making the right side of my mouth to hurt. It hurts to blow my nose, eat or even smile. What should I do and why is my nose hurting this much since my surgery?

    Hi I have the same thing, I was on the same tablets but they only seem to help with the actual allergic reaction, not the blocked/runny nose. I eventually was referred to an allergy specialist in the Heath hospital and they put me on nasal spray called Avmys. Its 1 spray in eache nostril once a day and you have to use it consistently, it takes a good couplf of weeks to really start working but after that it really does help. Maybe ask your GP about it. Hope that helps.

    My brother has just found out that he has swine flu, My friends are staying away from me as they think i may have it too.

My mum says that she is feel rather tired My dad and me are fine. My grandad baby sits us on the days tht my mum and dad work, he is 67 and i am sooo scared he will catch it from my brother, I love my grandad more than anything and would HATE ANYTHING to happen to him. What should i do ??

    Sorry...meant to write my hole is 12 mm in size not 1.2.....thanks Anna for replying....I do get headaches and have a constant runny nose all day everyday which really although sounds trivial does affect me day to day.....and I'm thinking that if the side of my nose has started to collapse just now.....is it just going to get worse ;(

    Hi, so I just noticed that i had a hole in my septum about a week ago. I didnt know if it was normal or not so I did some research and now I'm freaking out. I don't know what it's from. I've only done cocaine once, but I used to snort lortabs back in high school (i know...STUPID!) I blow my nose a lot because it gets runny a lot and every now and then i get scabs up there that are uncomfortable and i can't get them out by bowing my nose, so I have to pick them out. Anyway, I'm a broke college student with no health insurance so there is no way I can afford to have it fixed. Is it going to show on the outside of my nose eventually???? im freaking out!

    Dear Doctors, I was suffering from runny nose all the time and frequent sneezing was quite embarrassing. So recently I started taking vitamin c 1000mg daily. Since then I have noticed that no runny nose anymore, significantly sneezing is completely stopped. I am quite happy about what vitamin C did for me, but the unfortunate thing is that i am seeing some blood when I pass stool. As well as minimal irritation and blood lumps . My question is that does vitamin C cause rectal bleeding? If it does how can I avoid bleeding without stopping vitamin C intake. I also would like to know what causes vitamin C to make rectal bleeding? Appreciate your time and answer.

    Hi, I have a problem with a constant runny nose. It doesn't effect my sense of smell, in fact I have a really good sense of smell. But it does effect my breathing. It's been going on for years! Nasal sprays just make it run more. I go through so many tissue and sometimes my nose bleeds but then again I have suffered from nose bleeds since I was little. Any ideas? Thanks

    My husband has had a problem with a constant blocked nose for as long as I've known him and he says it's been an issue for a long as he can remember. It causes him to snore a lot and also causes him to constantly sneeze. His nose is always runny and we have no idea why. He's spoken to his GP about it before but was just given a nasal spray which made no difference. Whenever he sees his GP about any conditions he is never examined. They just guess and prescribe. Hence he hasn't gone back... any ideas? As it's driving us both crazy!!

    Hi I started to experience the same symptoms as this after I fell and cracked my head .Id broken my nose which became watery and runny which was later found to be a cerebral fluid leak and Id fractured my skull! It stopped leaking spontaneously so I didnt need treatment as it healed itself but my olfactory nerve was damaged and this is the reason that I still sometimes get this aweful stink of rotting cabbage for no apparent reason. Have you hurt or banged your nose or head at all?

    Hi, I have really bad breath all the time and it is bringing me down so much. iv had problems with my nose in the past it can be constantly blocked or constantly runny.

I have been doing everything I have been told and also constantly trying new products to freshen my breath but nothing has worked for me at all. please help :(
