Nasal Drip Several Years After Rhinoplasty?

I had a rhinoplasty back in the early/mid '90s. My nose will often drip when I'm eating, especially if I'm having spicy food. My nose also runs a lot more than it ever used to. What could be the causes and solutions? Thanks!

Nasal Drip Years after Rhinoplasty


There are several possible causes of your nasal drip so many years after a rhinoplasty, including anatomic nasal obstruction,allergies, or functional problems with intranasal secretions secondary to spicy foods. You need to consult with a nasal surgeon.
