Dear Doctors, I have caught a terrible headcold and my nose does not stop running. I am constantly having to blow my nose (although I am careful when I do so) and now it's swollen. Will this cause cold and nose blowing cause any permanent damage? Will the swelling eventually go down? thank you.

Caught a cold after rhinoplasty.....
By 5 months things are stable. Sorry you have a runny nose but don't worry about your surgery.
Upper respiratory infection after rhinoplasty
Catching a cold after a rhinoplasty can be a misterable feeling but it should have no long term ramifications on your surgical results. If it does not resolve within a reasonable time, you might want to go back to your physician to make sure you don't develop a sinus infection that would require antibiotics.
Your surgery result will not be affected. See your internist or family doctor for some help!
