SYMPTOMS OF NASAL AND SINUS DISEASE

Rhinorrhoea is the medical term for nasal discharge. Rhinorrhoea may be clear and watery (as in the runny nose of a typical cold), thick and mucoid, or coloured (green or yellow), often indicating bacterial infection. Surgeons often refer to coloured discharge as purulent. It may also be bloodstained

Sneezing is a normal phenomenon, but those with inflammatory and allergic nasal conditions are often subject to frequent paroxysms of sneezing.
