Swimming
After swimming I always have water running out my nose. This usually happens hours after coming out of the water. It's sometimes embarrassing. Is this normal?

Hi mark

Watery nose or rhinitis can occur with an allergic reaction. It's possible that the pool you're swimming in could have too much chlorine. An anti histamine ( preferably a non sedating one) which is an anti allergy medication may help relieve the symptoms.
