Nasal discharge

Discharges from the nose can be clear fluid, mucus, pus, blood or a mixture of substances. The discharge can originate from the nasal area or from deeper in the respiratory tract, eg the lungs, or be as a result of dental disease. There are several causes of nasal discharge, not all of them are infectious. The prognosis varies depending on the cause and the extent of disease when treatment is sought.
