Cant always see this..
as it is up in my nose.
Hi there - I need some help. I have a very bad " snotty"  nose problem and cant seem to get rid of it. I do not have a cold or am ill. It is a constant case of snot building up. And I get it mainly in the right nostril. It is almost like a whitish colour.
I have tried a few herbal anti- snot tablets but without success.
Any idea what i could do to stop it? or even the cause?
Thank you for any assistance.

Hi Queezy
You may have a polyp in your nose that makes excessive mucous. Ask your GP to have a look or refer you to an ENT specialist for a scope.
