My 8 year old son has had a runny nose for at least 5 years. Before that he had ear infections and an occasional runny noses.
He had tubes put in at 4, adnoids and tonsils removed at 6, surgical drainage done at 7. Way, way too much surgery. Nevery again. None of it helped with the runny nose. We've tried a netti pot, various sinus sprays, steroid sprays and various over the counter and prescribed meds.
He has been thourougly tested for allergies and has none.
When he doesn't have an infected, green runny nose, it runs clear, constantly, mainly out of one side only.
What could be causing it? I would like to just let it be, it's just a runny nose after all, but it ends up getting infected and it runs constantly. Other kid are noticing, it runs into his food, etc.
The docs are stumped.
Any ideas? How can we get this to stop? Thank you!
